Fine but high cloud first thing here in Turangi this morning. The Tongariro is fishable.  The cicadas are still chirping. Fishin's great, weather's great .... workin's a problem!!! Go fishin !!

(Above) Looking South to the Judges Pool yesterday evening. A cracker day here in Turangi today ... not too sure where the anglers were ?? Most likely fished out from catching too many during the day.

(Below) Turangi on a sunny evening. The complex just by the S.H.1 road Bridge is the Turangi Bridge Motel. A great location to stay and super close to the river !

(Above) A little bit of delayed coverage thanks to my roving reporter - Jens Muller-Buckland. These shots are from the Tauranga-Taupo River a couple of days ago. The smaller rivers to the north of Turangi have had a lot of extra water come down them due to some heavy rain in the hills. As you can see from these pictures the TT has contained a bit of colour.

(Above & Below) Nice looking water to nymph. The Tauranga-Taupo is a nice river to explore.  Great fun when it is clear to sight fish.
