Been in the upper reaches of a local river having almost to much fun casting cicada’s today… Gear failure resulted in two lost fish
First had my drag way to loose so got a massive bird nest when the fish run, got the second fish into the net only to have it half slide out through a massive hole in it , skillfully got it back in but while thinking of what to do is slipped back out of the hole and broke off
Best fishing I have had in that river for years, now to buy a new net bag19/02/2012 at 4:42 am #20427
My Awatere adventures on hold for a while I returned to a nearby river, because the river was so low I decided to fish a stretch which requires deep wading (was upto my neck in one spot), not the smartest idea on a 18* day. The fish were still quite hooked on Cicada’s, had two take my fly but due to muppetry on my part I failed to set the hook. The cold was partly to blame for the second fish. Strangely the fish were not holding in their normal haunts.
Had a quick flick in another river on the way home, and when I was not paying attention a fish took my cicada. By the time I realized it was on the bottom spitting out my fly.
Still a fun day, and I hope to make the most of the last few weeks of Cicada season.20/02/2012 at 8:48 am #20432

My guess is when he casts he “plonks” his tackle in the water, most plonkers do….
at least those we hear about do…..
until the mods remove his identity from the member list for being a total……plonker.04/03/2012 at 3:40 am #20526
Fished the Canals today. Lots of small rainbows around got 2 around 1lb.
Seems to be heaps of small fish in the canals at this time of year. Better winter fishing I think.05/03/2012 at 8:53 am #20540
Landed a trout last night while fishing for Salmon on a colorado spoon, a bit later Paul got one on a zeddy.
Tonight, saw a couple of nice fish in a very small backwater, might give them a hunt tomorrow. I am hearing fewer and fewer cicadas now27/03/2012 at 6:04 am #20744
Did not catch anything, but got asked for my license today by a ranger. A first in about 6 years of trout fishing27/03/2012 at 8:05 am #20748baitmanParticipant
Lol Ive had a licence every year for the past 32yrs only been asked for it once, 7 years ago underneath the rakaia bridge i saw an old man cleaning a 10lb salmon I said to him thats a great looking fish he said yeah got your licence on you?
I got busted of twice by salmon while trout fishing before the last fresh came through using veltecs.29/03/2012 at 8:52 am #20758
Went for a evening spinfish tonight in the estuary, use a orange/gold minnow and had a bit of action. Landed two trout, one tiny and the other about a pound.31/03/2012 at 4:50 am #20770
Caught this fellow and a couple of others in a Mountain tarn today. Perfect weather, barely any wind. Only downside, the small tarn had 12+ anglers on it. I got there first
Stuffed the strike up on 4 others, and saw heaps more. Also caught one in the river on the way home. Slipped and hurt my knee when trying to net her.01/04/2012 at 3:49 am #20787
