Fine and sunny. A blustery cool wind is still about. The Tongariro is clear and fishable. 

Quite a few anglers are still hitting the Tongariro with some mixed success. The nymphing has been pretty good with plenty of caddis and mayflies reported hatching. The evening rise has been quite good for most anglers with the Sporting Caddis and Goddard Caddis worth a burn.  Mayfly patterns worth look are Kakahi Queen, Black Gnat, Royal Wulff, Parachute Adams.  

A few good fish sound like they have been hooked on the wetline using woolly buggers. 

(Below) The picture below is of a few Ozzy larikins, Carl, Ben, Martyn and Co. They have come from what we call the West Island of New Zealand (Australia). 

They have been planning this trip to fish in Turangi for the last two years.  They are sick of catching huge Barramundi and dealing with crocodiles, poisonous snakes, poisonous spiders, cyclones, extreme heat, dry river beds (brings a new meaning to fishing the dry!) ...... and killer wombats!

They couldn't wait to get to New Zealand for the nice fresh crisp air, cool sparkling clear waters full of fish, real meat pies .... and reel beer !
