Fine and sunny start here in Turangi today. We had a bit of cloud overnight and some light rain looks to have fallen. The cloud has burnt off as of 9:00am. The Tongariro and other rivers are highly fishable.
A little bit of delayed coverage from New Years Day. I went out for a flick again with my Japanese mate Hide and we started the New Year with another bomb up on the Tongariro River. We had another great day fishing. Nymphing was really good once again using darker cloured nymphs. The day was hotter than the day before and a swim would have been nice but we were too busy catching fish !
The Tongariro has been fishing really good over the last few months. Plenty more cicadas are starting to chirp now so hopefully it wont be too far away until the fish lock on to feeding on them.
