Tongariro River Flow: 26.5m3/sec Weather: Mostly Sunny

Another great morning for Turangi seeing the first of the winter anglers come through the shop to gear up in their quest to catch the stunning fish which have begun their journey into the rivers. 

Alex and Rosie each went on their own respective trips yesterday. Rosie accompanied Josh on a trip over the hill for a change of scenery and to make the most of the back country before closing, while Alex didn't have to drive too far to net a rather exquisite brown - well done team!

The Delta has been providing satisfactory numbers of fish for those who enjoy anchoring up and casting out their go-to flies whilst catching up with family or friends. We have a series of great lines to use at the Delta specifically, my favourite being the RIO Premier Outbound Short I/S5/S7 which casts effortlessly whilst getting flies down into the zone.

If you have a boat and have been thinking of fly fishing the Delta this season, we encourage you to give it a go! If you need some advice, feel free to come on in and fire away your questions. Photo below is an example of one memorable fish caught last year using the line mentioned above.
