"For humankind, water is the source of eternal wonder, so too the creatures that dwell within this mysterious realm. The lure of the unknown is what drives fly fishers to explore and to seek out the largest fish of a species, not for the trophy but for the challenge. New Zealand is recognized as a mecca for giant brown trout, LEVIATHAN descends into tiny spring creeks hidden deep in the dense forests to shine some light on these enigmatic beasts. Next are the giant rainbow trout of Patagonia?s fabled Jurassic Lake. In the South Pacific, there is one denizen of the deep that demands instant respect - the Giant Trevally follow fly fishers as they lock horns with these mighty fish in the coral reefs of French Polynesia and Australia?s Great Barrier Reef. Regardless of location, a fishing adventure targeting the world?s piscatorial legends is certain to be a feast for the senses. Buy Online
