Fished the Shag river today did a bit of nymphing with a dry indicator but no success, found an incredibly deep hole just before the shag went over some sort of dam structure, got the spin rod out and had a 7-10lb jack brown follow me in snap twice at my super kobra and swirl away just before going over the edge of the dam.
Clumsy trout missed my lure…
Fished there for another hour but only saw 1 fish around thr 2lb mark on the way back.28/02/2009 at 8:54 pm #12618
Went out recently to my secret stream in christchurch.
Caught a 5 3/4 pound brown after about 45 mins repeatedly casting at it and changing my fly. After that I walked futher upstream and caught three 3 pound browns on willow grubs
Great fun in a small stream28/02/2009 at 10:03 pm #12620
I know where your secret stream is a very good spot you can walk for miles did you hook that big one about a km in where the fantails like to hang around?03/03/2009 at 6:46 am #12660troutaholicParticipant
on saterday i got 3 perch and two rainbows bigest 2.5 lbs07/03/2009 at 7:34 am #12686
Fished spot x wading up and down about a 6-7km stretch, nice river, plenty of fish, though they are all midgets except for the odd big trout in deep pools.
Plenty of eels.
Got 4-5 midget trout lost countless more.
My mate ‘Troutaholic’ got a 2.5lb rainbow.24/03/2009 at 6:02 am #12814
Fished spot x again yesterday, same story as last time plenty of midget browns, I got 3-4 my mate got a few more and I got a 2.5lb rainbow, though we spotted a group of brown trout with 3-4 trout in 6-7lb margin, and a few smaller fish, and naturally I cast my lure and catch the small one!
Big eel nearby too, the smaller fish stayed away but the bigger trout didn’t bat an eyelid. I’ll bring my fly rod next time as spot X is the one of the few places where fly-casting is possible.
It was useless fishing for the rest after I caught that trout as they were all spooked.24/03/2009 at 8:26 am #12816

Went out to secret stream X yesterday. Probably saw about 7 fish over 10 pounds.
I managed to catch a 4 and a 5 pounder. But as I was using a 4 weight those fish had me sprinting upstream.
Photo to come

I need to go trout fishing before the end of the Season
Just checked my dairy. I am so tragic, the last trout I have caught on the fly was on opening day. A 6lb brown, also caught a 3.3lb brown that day.
I am going to fly fish two of my favorite rivers before the end of the season and post the results here minus river names I am also going to catch a fish bigger then 6lb
