Another nice sunny day today but with a lot less wind which is a bonus for the fly fisherman. A few anglers have made a few grumbles about the cold ..... roll on summer fishing !!!

The rivers are back to clear again with some anglers finding the fishing has tapered off a bit when this happens .... others change tactics and continue to do well. 

Still appears to be a majority moving on the glo bugs for the nymphers.

Other anglers have been reporting quite a lot of anglers in places and finding it a bit difficult to find a spot to fish. With this congestion some have noted a lack of "Etiquette". These days anglers appear to be "everyone for themselves". One of the main gripes is anglers just jumping into a pool ahead or below other anglers without "ASKING" those already in the pool if it is ok to do so, sometimes anglers playing the "oh I thought you were so far away that it didn't matter" card.

Les Phelan (aka the Taranaki Terror) and two beauties that he managed to secure.

Also Les says "hello daughter".






(Above & Below) UFO? Unidentified Foggy Object ? or Lenticular cloud over Turangi yesterday evening.

Reminds me of a giant marshmallow. Whilst fishing take a look around with your eyes and you might see some other fantastic works of nature.
