*Pic: Scott Murray in the Mokihinui River with 1080 pellets that fell from the sky on his American guests and him “It was like big hail drops hitting the water around us,” said New Zealand trout fishing guide Scott Murray who is a co-owner of River Haven Lodge near Murchison. It was no ordinary hail storm. The ‘big hail drops’ were toxic 1080 pellets. The 1080 drop was a joint effort by Ospri for possum “control” and the Department of Conservation’s “Battle for Our Birds” predator control programme. It was December 2, 2016 when Scott and his two guests helicoptered into the Mokihinui River that enters the Tasman Sea north of Westport on the west coast of NZ’s South Island. The upper reaches in the river’s north and south branches are of wilderness character. Also in the area the same day was Zane Mirfin a Nelson guide and two guests. Zane Mirfin’s Californian client was incredulous when Zane explained what the aerial bombardment with 1080 pellets was about. Meanwhile Scott Murray and a 91-year-old Californian client and nephew had just landed from their helicopter in the Mokihinui valley when they saw other choppers carrying buckets loaded with 1080 green pellets. Next moment poison-laced pellets started ‘plip-plopping’ into the water around them. Emotions naturally ran high. Scott Murray was angry while his guests were shocked and incredulous at the helicopters indiscriminately dropping poisoned pellets around. The pellets landed in the water and over the river flats and ridges of the valley. Afterwards his shocked client debated whether he would ever return to New Zealand following the incident.

I couldn't get into the trout fishing stream of thought enough to appreciate #troutfishinginamerica completely. I understand it is a metaphor for the steel industry, but too far for me. In Watermelon Sugar was a nice, slow moving, weird but somewhat familiar and comforting story. Great for a Sunday morning reading with coffee while the fog clears.😀 Poetry, interesting. Worth checking out. Enjoy Sunday! ☮ -- #richardbrautigan #inwatermelonsugar #thepillversusthespringhillminedisaster #bookstagram #igreads #currentlyreading #book #books #cultclassics #americansurrealism #surrealism #writers #writing #readersofinstagram #bookshelf #bookpic #bookworms #sundayreads #poems #poetry

Fresh water anglers!!! Beware!! The New Zealand Government is currently trying to amend the law to allow them to lawfully allow poison to be dropped into our waterways, which will kill trout and fresh water species of fish. See Facebook post below from Carol Sawyer. THE THREAT POSED TO TROUT BY DoC POISONERS One of the threats to trout and angling in the Indigenous Freshwater Amendment Bill is this amendment to the Conservation Act in the Bill - see attached clause and suggested amendment attached. DoC and/or its contractors will be lawfully allowed to use toxins to poison trout streams. Stop them NOW before it’s too late!!! #nzpighunting #nzhunting #nzhunt #nzhunter #freshwaterfishing #freshwaterfishes #trout #troutfishing #troutfishingnz #troutfishingaustralia #troutfishingtasmania #troutfishinginamerica #troutflies #trouttattoo #troutbum

"The old guy who built me crapped in here 9,745 times and he's dead now and I don't want anyone else to touch me. Leave me alone. I'm a monument now to a good ass gone under. There's no mystery here. That's why the door's open. If you have to crap, go in the bushes like a deer." "Fuck you," I said to the outhouse. "All I want is a ride down the river."
