Thanks justfishing, its great to get one on the board. I figure with the K’s I have done for this fish my carbon footprint must be the size of Ashburton ! Hopefully just one of many that myself and fellow forum members will land when the rivers come right. Im going to check out the Orari/Opihi tomorrow and hopefully Thursday monings and with any luck the flows will have enticed a few in and we will get them as the water clears. Thats the plan anyway.
