Thanks for your efforts Rupert James and your teapot. I apreciated the comments about the trout being hard fighting best fishing I have ever had was Ruakituri I am sure those trout are turbo charged P addicts they go like stink EH! Two biggest trout I have caught were there matching 9lb rainbows on the same day I got 15 fish that day over 6lb and only stopped fishing because I was knackered. I haven't made it above the falls yet but someday I will Smiley.

Taking the liberty of bumping this yarn from Rupert James again.
For the new chums and those that fish the Hangaroa or the Ruakituri Rivers.

Gidday Baz. My father was born and raised up the Ruakituri before a move to Matawai. His father was on a soldier settlement block I believe  (but I might be wrong). If my memory serves I remember stories from my childhood about how his grandfather took several trout eggs and possibly, though unlikely, fingerlings from the river in a kerosene tin to such places as Tutira and the lower Mohaka, again I might be wrong. I grew up in the Mohaka area and I have fond memories of trips up the Ruakituri as a kid. It's  where my love for the outdoors took hold. I remember catching an eel under the falls as a kid, it was huge and released to create memories for others. Several deer were not so lucky.
I have been handed down an old Long Tom that was apparently used for shooting scrub bulls on the back of Waimaha. It isn't in working condition. I live in Australia now and I cannot wait to return to that special part of the world with my little outdoorsman, a two year old named after the God of the Forest. Thank you for sharing a wonderful story. I will be certain to share it with my father.
  

Happiness is when your hardest decision is whether to take the rifle, the bow, the rod or all three.

Just checked with Dad, his Grandfather was the manager at Papuni for 30 odd years apparently and helped release trout from a hatchery in Greenmeadows near Napier into the lower Ruakituri......... apparently.

That's interesting Ruralmedic--So your grandfather had a hand in releasing trout-awesome. His efforts have left a great legacy for us anglers.
The Ruakituri and the upper Hangaroa are 2 of my favourite rivers.
Thanks for that interesting bit of history.
Cheers.

I have seldom been so drawn into a story, I felt every bump along the way - thoroughly captivating.
And thank you to the man who posted that picture - it is as beautiful a place as I have seen.

I have never been in that place, yet that name rang a bell and there in my notebook of places to go to is the 'Ruakituri' - and why it is there I have now forgotten.

Thank you for bumping that story - I would have been unlikely to have seen it otherwise.

Strangely, I read another post this week that tugged a heart string - and that was one by 'Tararua Hunter' of his walk into the headwaters of the - and I've forgotten the name of the bloody river. That was another place I wanted to go, just to look, and again - that was a place I never got to.
