My mate and his family have gone back to Wanganui now but he took back 2 big chilly bins of fillets.We went out to browns beach and got 14 ellies over the holidays.I have been concentrating on salmon lately.Went up to Hanmer Springs 2 weeks ago and fished morning from 6.00am – bout 9.30am then again at night from bout 7.30 – 10.00 in the Waiau river, got 1 hook up but lost it as it went straight for the foul ground.my first time salmon fishing so didnt expect the bastards to take so much line so quick.will know better next time.am going to have a go in lake hawea in 2 wks then off to Wanganui for the annual Eides surfcasting competition that goes for 2 days,have fished in that for 14 years so its hard to break tradition.

how did
