• Short Summary

    Rainbow trout are seen in the crystal clear waters of Fairy Springs in Rotorua, New Zealand.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'A Fisherman's dream'.

    Rotorua, New Zealand.

    Various shots of the Fairy Springs - crystal clear waters of a river where rainbow trout live. (The first shot shows the waters twinkling impossibly - some special lighting or tricks at play!) The water is so clear that we can see the fish swimming about.

    In a 14-feet pool we see sand moving about, caused by the spring water forcing its way out of the earth. A woman throws food (bread?) into the pool and the fish dart about to catch it. She holds some bread on the surface of the water and the fish come up to take bites from it. The woman attempts to lift a few fish out of the water but they are very fast!
