- Last Days - The season is counting down to a close so I had to get away for a few days with a mate and have a fish myself. It wasn’t easy but we found a few awesome fish in some great water. The fish this time of year are in ultimate condition and fight like nothing else!
- Autumnal Colours - The change of season has come sharp and fast this year. The leaves have quickly turned to their fall colours and the browns have followed suit. Just 2 weeks today until closing day, get out there and make the most of it!
- The Sipper - Presley shows off her best fish from today which treated us to a slo-mo dry fly eat on some beautiful water. A great attitude and a bit of finesse made it a great day for the girls from Colorado.
- Busy Days - Its been a crazy year so far and this is a throw back to the last time I went fishing myself, about 2 months ago now. I actually think it’s the only time I’ve caught a fish in 2019 when I haven’t been on the job! However with the season almost over it means I get to spend a bit of time on the water before its closed for the winter, then it’s time to warm up in Mexico 😉
- Nature’s Art - Its all about the detail. Brown trout are one of the most exquisitely marked fish with reds, orange and yellow colors all working in harmony.
He’s not near my biggest of the season but easily one of my favorite and caught today under crazy circumstances. We found this fish amongst floating logs in a small back water just cruising around looking for food. My clients wanted me to show them a bow and arrow cast so I reluctantly gave it a go. As I flicked in the small dry it hit hard and sunk but by some miracle a spiderweb caught my tippet and held it suspended in the water until this guy swam over and sucked it in. Using sharp angles and pushing the logs out of the way I managed to get hime to net. An incredibly spotted fish for this river and probably one of the best looking fish I’ve had here. Thanks guys for letting me give it a go!
- On Our Own - Early morning in a stunning valley with no one else in sight. The peace and quiet in such an amazing place is very unique these days, although in New Zealand it isn’t too difficult to get away from the crowd!
- Honey Hole - There is always that one pool that you always know will produce the goods even on a tough day. This is one of those on one of my favorite rivers and usually has serval fish happily sipping away on the surface, although they can be hard to get to at times!
- Never give up - After a quiet morning with very few fish about we doubled down and kept pushing on around the next corner. We were then rewarded as this beauty was sitting deep in a pool waiting for us. Trey from California made the perfect cast to nail his PB river trout
- Weather Man - Being a guide in NZ is not just about the fishing, first and foremost we need to understand the constant weather changes and how it affects each river. Yesterday the biggest floods in years blew out almost all the rivers nearby and closed roads, today we still managed to find clear water and some nice fish happy to eat!
- Wandering - When trout hunting in NZ you never realize how far you’ve walked until you turn around and have to make it all the way back to the car. Time flies when your having fun!
- Hanging Out - A backcountry trout sunbathing in this glorious valley that we flew into last week. The days are getting calmer, cooler and more peaceful as the leaves begin to change. The countdown to closing season begins!
