Tongariro River Flow: A low and clear 26.2m3/sec

Weather Forecast: Partly cloudy with light winds

Woolly buggers seem to be on the agenda for the team the last couple days and swinging on the Tongariro has been proving a good method for targeting those more desirable fresh rainbows. Gabe recently landed a few fatties on an Olive Woolly Bugger.

Last night I shot out for a night fish on my birthday and found success on the river mouths stripping a black woolly bugger with a lumo body. We have recently restocked the range of buggers here and Teresa has been busy tying plenty of gold beaded olive woolly buggers for the shelf which are a staple here on the Tongariro. 

Some cool new Patagonia gear has hit the shelves here at Sporting Life including the Men's Boulder Fork Rain Jacket and the Fishermans Rolled Beanie.

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend out fishing!
