Thursday 7th of April 2022

It's a beautiful Autumn morning here in Turangi and we are definitely feeling cooler in the extremities with that Southerly wind coming through. The Tongariro river received a brief period of rainfall overnight to bring in a few more chrome but otherwise nothing significant - we do need more rain to flush away the algae and it appears we will be waiting a while longer for it.
The other day I went for a wander through the mid reaches of the Tongariro and swung wee wets which saw a good number of the juveniles and some sizable fish netted and they sure packed a punch on the #4 Trout Spey. The larger fish were sighted in shallow slow moving water along the bank and took a lace moth pattern - there's not many of these triangular critters about but fish are still on them.

CDC Indicator Moth Fl. Orange is now available in store, so come on in and grab a few - these do not stick around for long.


Most of NZ's fishos will know C3 flies well and have caught some beauties with them all around the country and further abroad. These flies designed in Taupo, NZ are available in store and in our online shop.
