Went down to the caitlins on Saturday, did a bit of reconnaissance, found out that it is a good salmon fishing area, and that last year was brilliant with one guy and a couple of mates catching 12 salmon in one day.

Anyway tried a bit of fly-fishing on the Waipati river [don’t know why its called a river its a max of 5 metres wide] saw a school of about 6-7 trout all about 1 and half pound and under.

Nearly got my first fish on the fly-rod but it bit the fly behind the hook, I was just fishing a wooly bugger like it was a bully, unfortuantly that when the fish struck it scared the other fish downstream I kept casting but only got one trout following my fly then nothing, so went home.
