**Lost Skagit head in Reed Pool area. If anyone comes across a green Skagit head in the lower river, we have a customer that would love to have it back**

The fishing is going epically well as we have been hearing/seeing nothing but good reports coming from those who are fishing the Tongariro, using their chosen techniques ranging from wetlining to euro-nymphing. 

Siobhan did the big drive up for a day of fishing fun in the rain with Andrew and I, we thought to give the big rivers a rest and show her some of the smaller streams of the Plateau. It was her first go at fishing small water during the winter run and it's safe to say she is hooked on it! Once she got the hang of minimal overhead casts she was into 'em and having a rodeo of a time as fish tried to tangle the line amongst the snags 😅

Available instore & online, these are a top choice for anglers around the country which come in various colours to match the individual! The durable rubber mesh protects the fish (doesn't strip the protective slime of the fish) while your gear is less likely to tangle.
