Catch of the day

At Webb's auction on Tuesday night, Peter Peryer's picture Trout was sold for $8750 plus 12.5% commission. The picture had been estimated at between $4000 and $6000 and was one of the few items to bid above its high estimate. In 1987, when the picture was exhibited, we happened to be in Auckland and took a photo of Peter and two of his friends holding the photograph. So here they are. The person who caught the trout, the person who cooked it and, of course Peter, who photographed it.
