Turangi - fishing capital of the world

Fishing the Tongariro River at Turangi
Turangi is much warmer than further south but  standing in the middle of a river for hours on end as fisher folk do here must make you yearn for a cup of warm soup.

There must be plenty of fish though. Two Hawkes Bay residents at the Tongariro River told me they had caught twenty trout between them over the weekend.

The Turangi Art Gallery in the small outdoor mall is definitely worth a visit, so if you are reading this and on your way to Turangi, make sure to call in. It is a real pleasure to discover so much local artistic talent.
