Guided Lynn and Neville this morning on the Tongariro and had a pretty successful morning. Lynn and Neville own a holiday home here in Turangi (NZ$100/night if anyone is interested) and have done a little fly fishing before but not a lot, and this morning they both got off the mark each with their first good sized trout caught fly fishing. In the end 10 were hooked and around half were landed leaving Lynn and Neville very happy. I was using my new technique for training people to ‘double haul’ from the beginning and it was going pretty well for both of them. I will add details of this technique for getting people to ‘double haul’ soon to my site.
Fished myself yesterday – very briefly and hooked 0 – though it was really just a click flick in a pool that I never normally catch a lot in with a friend. Fished briefly a different river in semi flood the day before and hooked 2 on SJW – though was pretty slow. Heading out for a bit of a casting session myself now – hopefully to hook a trout or two as well.
