Fine and sunny start to the day here in Turangi today. Think it was about 3 degrees celcius on the outside thermometer when I opened the curtains this morning. No wind which is a bonus for the fly caster. The Tongariro is running low and clear … really clear.
We had a busy time in the shop yesterday with quite a few customers which was good to see. A few stunk of trout … yes, we can smell it on you and even if you say you haven’t caught anything …. we can smell it !! I saw evidence of a good sized brown trout that had been caught. A good mixture of nymphers and wetliners hitting the river. The odd fish is still been seen rising.
(Above) I could see three anglers up in the Hydro Pool at 10:00am this morning. Look at that day !!
(Below) ” Fancy a Shag ? … How about a Duck then ?? ” I spotted this Shag sitting on the rock. I would call it the most skillful angler on the river at present. There seems to be heaps of them around, along with a ton of Blue Ducks.
