New Zealand's Ohau Channel

The Ohau Channel flowing from Lake Rotorua to Lake Rotoiti in New Zealand opens for the season tomorrow and an annual spectacle begins again as anglers go nuts trying to catch double-digit trout: “By 4am most if not all of the accessible spots will be taken. At 5am a siren will sound to mark the official opening. Before it fades the first flies will hit the water and within seconds the first fish will be hooked. At least 50 anglers will be there at 5am. They will cast between 50 and 150 flies, depending on whether they use one, two or three-fly rigs.” Harvey Clark in the New Zealand Herald.
