    I have lost 3 fish now, getting a little angry, I’m hoping to get this so call “Monkey” off my back before the new year rolls over. I wish these fish weren’t so hard to come by down in Dunedin.

    If I drive up to fish the Rakaia or Rangi over January 1st and 2nd is there anyone who would like to join me so I can get a little local knowledge, or at least point me in the direction of access to some good pools salmon are holding up in?

    I got it in the Rakaia gut. It’s flowing really fast so quite hard to fish. I didn’t see anything else caught at the mouth this morning.

    Jezza, I don’t really fish up river so don’t know any good holes this year in the Rakaia. The mouth seems to be better on the north side but you need a bike coz it’s flowing out right at the south end atm. If you have hooked three so far you are doing better than many others, ones gotta stick eventually. I hooked/fouled and dropped three myself this season so even the wee fish was great to see on the kitchen bench!

    Went upriver on the Hurunui camping for Xmas. Got there on Xmas Eve late afternoon. Got the camp set up and had dinner, then wife said go and catch a salmon for Xmas lunch. Caught this just opposite the camp after 10mins spin fishing on my trout rod. Small but tasty, hot smoked it and ate it for the next 3 days after putting in the chilly bin with the ice bottles.
