"Here comes the sun, here comes the sun And I say it's all right  Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here." Nothing like a bit of "The Beatles" on a sunny day like today. Another beautiful sunny day in utopia! Only a few clouds in the sky, absolutely lovely.

Had a lovely father and daughter come in the shop yesterday, and are spending a few days together fishing, they were at the Hinemaiaia, and sounded like they caught a lot of fish there but were on the small size. They were heading to try out the Tongariro today so hopefully they get some big boys today. Also had a fishing guide in this morning that said he got a nice big trout down the lower end of the river yesterday.

Here are a few photos that have been sent in by Mr John Reid, he had a good stay here, him and his boy caught and released just over 40 fish and lost just as many.

Had a nice Japanese man come in from Sydney, 001 tried to encourage him

to sushi-mi the trout he caught. Apparently tastes delicious! See his catches below
