Weather: Rain 

The rain continues and as you can see on the graph recording at 0918hrs the Tongariro has received quite a bit of rain overnight. Anglers on the river have reported satisfactory fishing for mostly browns and the odd rainbow along the edges, with wet-lining or nymphing methods working well. 

Rabbit streamers, wooly buggers, and dark or hot spot nymphs are heading out the door this morning which can find online:
