Tannin Rain

A torrential rainfall pelts the tannin-stained waters of this backcountry New Zealand pool, allowing a stealthy fly change as the angler stalks a hefty 8lb South Island brown trout sitting upstream. A few minutes later she hooksets and battles the brown as he tries to escape downstream through the rapids, her veteran hand quickly, and quietly, landing the “uncatchable” tannin pool trout. The immensity of nature around her the only true witness.
