Easter brings home the fun!

After a busy few weekends on the road, it was nice to get into a few fish for myself. The usual waterways have had a lot of pressure over summer, but persistence and using stealthy techniques paid off! a few shots of some very nice NZ fish in God's own Aotearoa....

Change in weather, change in fly!

Noticed real changeable weather, and the nymphs just are not working!...well me too after using the go to methods last week, I decided to change it to fishing a midge tip Airflo line, concentrating on strip searching for fish. The result after pulling orange head streamers was instant! ...

A Sinking line to finish em off!

Sometimes good casting mixed with location and listening to the guide come off! The call to switch to an Airflo clean camo sinking line proved deadly for Sydney, Australia's James Yerbury, picking off a mix of browns and bows for a 35-40 fish bag.

Super spawning fish

It was great to get out on the last week before closing in Rotorua's premium trout stream. We waded through many rainbows with some exciting action, and finally a few browns were spotted in a slight pool, lots of cover, snags and shadow. Yet a carefully placed fly never goes astray! Well done Jeremy!...

Some spectacular trout in the river at the moment! with lots of energy!

Using light gear can be hard work...I suggest a large net and fish with a friend. I learnt the hard way with these fish running down stream and netting myself, there just has to be an easier way! ...

Some recent action on my local streams

With the weather conditions dropping this brings about some great spawning runs into our local streams , solid fish are not shy in taking bright colored egg patterns early morning. Often paired fish can be seen turning over and making reds. With delicate presentation they may even take a fly. ...
