Fine and sunny start to the day here in Turangi today. A bit more cloud about today. A little cooler start to the morning. No wind as of 9:00am. The wind may increase during the day. It got really gusty yesterday from mid day until well after dark.
I was out in the garden after work last night and spotted my first three Passion Vine Hoppers for the season. They should increase in intensity over the next few weeks. If you see fish rising but can’t see what they are after then they are most likely feeding on the Passion Vine Hopper.
There were more cicadas chirping yesterday. A few more anlgers have been calling into the shop to purchase cicada flies over the last few days but most are still running a dropper nymph below them.
Report from Lake O yesterday …. bloodworms, damsels and something with a bit of bling on it.
