My First New Zealand Rainbow Trout

fran-bow-tongaririimgp0544It was getting late in the day, we had been fishing the lower sections of the Tongariro River all day and I had not had a take. After dinner we headed up to the Shag pool to fish the run down to Duchess Pool. Fishing a dry and a nymph dropper was not attracting any fish. Few bugs were coming off so I thought I may as well create my own hatch, putting on two different dry flies, a cicada imitation and my yellow bodied dry fly I tie for a river at home. First cast and the fish struck on my yellow fly! I set the hook, it flipped in the air trying to shake the hook and bolted downstream. Keeping up the tension, following it downstream it soon tired and came to hand.  A very respectable sized rainbow to finish off the day.

Merry Christmas Mom

Well we have talked about it for a while and finally got around to making you a website. It is a good starting point but lots to do. You can manage everything through web based administration. Included in this is some lessons on how to do it too.

Love Randy
