November 12, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Grammy Award-winning folk artist Steve Earle, gave up heroin and innumerable other bad habits and found fly fishing. It didn’t hurt that he found New Zealand too. “I’d heard New Zealand had some of the best fly-fishing in the world and I can only conclude it’s where fly-fishermen go to die. There’s nothing in the ecosystem that eat fish that big and, as a consequence, the fish are huge.” On Stuff.co.nz.
