Hi all,well the last 2 weeks on the Waimak,what a great salmon fishing resource so close to Chch. Fished hard,1st week up river seen od fish,but no takers even tho i fished 6 early mornings.Second week down at Macs amongst trees and rocks,fished hard for 6days,sunrise to late afternoon,still no fish.4days a guy would land a fish beside me,4 different coloured zeddys,mostly jack fish.Its like a big lucky dip but the guys up on the corner up the top,both sides on the low tide gota a small area of water to fish,nice spot, watched them land 4 salmon yesterday and the guy rigth beside me on the rocks lands a nice salmon.Iv watched yellowfin land a few this week,well done.Meet some great people out at the waimak,got some great photos.Got no salmon but enjoyed myself. Im off to hunt some deer in the next week,get rid of the salmon strees :grin: Cheers Fishunter
