This book is a true collection item originally published by Reed Publishing in 1960, then reprinted, by Halcyon Publishing in limited edition of 500 numbered copies.

Freshwater Admiral describes fishing the North Island's Tongariro River and Lake Taupo, during the 1950s-1960s. This is one mans view and as the author quotes "The opinions are my own. All anglers will disagree with some of the book and some anglers will disagree with all of this book, otherwise they wouldn't be anglers. These pages will take you to a time when fly fishermen were a rare sight on the Tongariro River and give you a glimpse of what the fishing was like in the 1950s.

One photo in this book from 1911 with seventy eight rainbow trout weighing nearly 1000lb is an amazing sight with many of the fish in the double figure range of 10-20lb.
