I am yet to catch a spawning salmon… i started fishing for salmon in 1998/99 season, just as it started to die off. had no luck after watching countless salmon get caught the previous 2 seasons. I did some traveling in 2008 and came back to give it another go, only to break my leg before the season started and i finaly get back on my feet and do my first fish for the year on 1st april.. 1 day too late for the mighty Waitaki, so only trout or canal/lake salmon since (8lb is my biggest).
this season will be my season to shine… bring on the big boys.
i caught this fish on saturday, am i cheating???
