No trout at Taupo?
I guess that - with the amount of people driving though - that this is justified - the long distance driver wants something familiar - something that does not mean trying your luck - at some - unknown greasy spoon.
Sometimes I do feel sorry for the tourist.... the travellers who come to New Zealand - after a taste of something new.... something that you can't get at home - something that isn't ubiquitous in our global village.
Ok to the point - there should be a joint in Taupo - that serves up fresh cooked - Rainbow Trout - be it fresh or smoked - or even pate.
I know - there can't be a wholesale - commercial slaughter (as lets face it - our industry would trawl the lake - and a year later it would be empty - much like our coastline) - but perhaps a license could be issued - to one place and one place only.
So people who visit - can taste something from the lake - something fresh.... something iconic.... and tell people about it.
Imagine - people being able to taste the freshest rainbow trout... served up - right next to the amazing lake Taupo!
