Neil and I are instore today, and we have been busy making sure everyone has their gear and fishing info well covered. The Tongariro river looks beautiful today as seen in photos below, a good number of recovering rainbow and the odd fresh brown trout being a bonus. The lake fishing continues to produce good numbers of fish for those harling, trolling and jigging. The Ginger Mick working very well as reported by those fishing on Lake Taupo during the week.
