I've been back from New Zealand for two weeks now and the glow from this fantastic experience has still not faded. It was that good! The influence of the "Mouse Hatch" on the northern section of the South Island was really quite remarkable and I'm delighted that our guests on the trip were able to experience it. The KIWI hospitality was at its usual "long lost brother" level and the weather was absolutely spectacular, with clear blue skies and little if any wind, for the duration of the trip.
Greetings and salutations to all our friends! Last month we had a guest experience one of those difficult and unwanted travel situations where a forgotten knife in his carry on set off a series of events that led to him getting fully ripped apart in a TSA private screening room. As a result, he missed his flight and subsequently, the first day of fishing on his trip. This got me thinking that it might be a good idea to go over a few helpful travel tips so that guests can avoid this type of situation.
