You can almost set your watch by the hatch , it's usually very predictable, but today the hatch was poor only the odd Large dark olive coming off through out the few hours i was there .
I sat and waited , i had a cast just to get the feel for it again. I walked scanning pools for risers , but nothing stirred. I was about to head for home , when I decided just to fish the water , i set up my usual search method NZ style, and i almost had a heart attack when out of the blue, a trout slurped my klink off the surface.
That was all i managed but it put a smile on my face , and opened my account for 2013.
