Russell Frost is the letterpress printer. A 'Boy of the Buller River', he grew up in the remote Nelson Lakes National Park (NZ) where his love for wild brown-trout blossomed. A student at Lake Rotoiti School, his school teacher's husband was the pioneering fishing guide; Tony Entwistle. After graduating from Lincoln University in 1996, Russell went onto become a member of the NZ Professional Fishing Guides himself, working for Lake Rotoroa Lodge and later for the Owen River Lodge.
