Nothing was planned for the weekend until, Brian phoned me at about 9:30am , he was planning a day on a highland stream , quickly ok'ing it with the wife she allowed me to go! Result! Another visit to the Glen, it was dry when we left so i didn't bother with the jacket, half way down the road though it started pouring down, then thankfully by the time we arrived it was all but a spit or two. We walked downstream to our starting point, the river very low and crystal clear ,It was about 1pm before we started fishing. the typical NZ style is good here, it's not the sort of river that you see a lot of rising fish , tends to be a bring'em up or nymph'em type river.
Theres a pool where we have never caught trout , it looks great, always does . Today was the day.
First cast to the very last signs of the bubble line produced a nice pounder to the nymph, they don't half fight hard!
A fine fish . This next one took a nymph in a turbulent lie hung under a big stimulator. One of the rivers signature brownies beautifully marked .
|1 1/4 lb|
One last pool to fish , a good one at that ! But only produced the one fish to Brian's mammoth stimulator.
We finished up at 6:30 pm , it had been a grand day fishing.
