Guided Chris this morning (working in Wellington for a few years). It was Chris’s first attempt at nymphing and he took to it like a fish to water. The new technique I am trying for getting peoples casting up and going with double hauling from the start seems to be working quite well. Chris managed to hook 4 and land 3. The flow was 33 cumecs.
Later on I fished the Hydro pool and hooked and landed 3 – an unusually good landing ratio for me. I would have said the fishing was slow but others I have spoken to have said that its actually pretty good. In fairness I ownly fished for an hour or 2 in one spot – more for the sake of just having a cast than to seriously look for fish. Went back to the house to see how much cleaning and cooking my mum had done.
