Nancy MacKinnon landed the above beautiful brown trout while fishing public water on the Motueka River on the South Island of New Zealand. The wary trout meant that Nancy had to use a long leader, fine tippet, and small fly to get the job done. Nancy’s husband, Orvis vice-chairman Dave Perkins, caught a beauty of his own, on a small river in Kahurangi National Park.
