About to take a break for 3 weeks on my normal {sabbatical} Trout Tour of N.Z. So I thought I would bring you up to date with the fishing before I go. Tantangara has been fishing like it always does the start of the season if the weather is right the fish are there on the edge but very spooky hanging flies is not my go but a pair of Nymphs or my favourite Woolly Worms on a dead slow retrieve is getting good results if your bait fishing Scrub worms or Grubs are the go there is some Dry fly action but again very patchy it’s all about the weather at this time of year plenty of storms rolling thru so the Beetle hatches won’t be far off . The rivers are looking a treat with plenty of flow in the smaller streams and Eucumbene and Murrumbidgee Rivers running nice and high the fishing is ok but if the warmer weather swings in for a week or so the dry fly will be awesome. Believe it or not some fish are still spawning in the high-country streams. Lake Eucumbene has been a troller’s paradise for weeks now and should start to favour the shore based angler soon very hard with the fly a big fly inched along the bottom or hanging flies on a very slow retrieve . The sight fishing hasn’t kicked in yet and it should by the time I’m back . I haven’t seen a lot of snakes this year so far I’m sure when they become more active so will the fishing action GREAT .So this page might be a little quiet for a few weeks if you want to see what I’m up to sight fishing on the South Island go to Facebook : Adaminaby Angler or Col Sinclair .

Tight water dry fly-fishing

Tight water dry fly fishing when you get right it’s awesome well done Leon and as per usual I did my normal dodgie filming at least you know it’s me because I always seem to get a finger in the way.

You just have to go fishing

When days like these come along you just have to drop everything and go fishing. When the conditions are perfect for sight fishing you just have to do it it’s an addiction. Some days are epic other days are dead but any time spent on the water chasing Trout is time well spent even when you don’t see a fish you are still learning the zen of still water sight fishing and with all that goes with it the disappointment of the refusal for no apparent reason and the adulation of the take when everything goes right it’s all there like life itself. Hours of nothingness followed by minutes of awesomeness. And then there’s the place that you’re fishing it maybe the beauty of the Australian high-country lakes or rivers or somewhere else Trout just seem to live in beautiful places.

Nymph packs

Finally got my act together here’s the Nymph pack I have been talking about 40 nymphs for $50.00+$10.00 post and packing call 0427541180 or Email adaminaby.angler@bigpond.com

Only a week to go before rivers open and Trout season starts and it’s looking awesome the rivers are high and running fast the smaller streams are also looking great so bring it on Nymph fishing is the go either with glow bug and small nymph trailing not far behind or double nymph rig with a flashy attractor and a smaller natural nymph to follow the way the river flow is maybe a large thing-a-ma-bobber indicator and bombs to get you down . If your new to the sport or even if your an old hand at it drop in and have a chat about this style or any other help you need with your fishing .
