    Nice video, handy for an amateur like me still trying for my first. Will try and find some nice water like that next time I’m out, spent the morning out on the rakaia today but no luck

    hurunui mate…I bag limited out before anyone caught anything…the egg beaters beat the overheads today haha..14 in all my second was the heaviest of the day..one other around the 12lb mark the rest were 10 and under.lots of fish dropped..the usual hook pulled from trying to horse fish with 50lb braid and stiff 12 foot rods with no action…such a waste of an awesome fighting fish.

    yea Kris :wink: fish taken on Southside aswel….went down the rangitata with donnie for a couple hours messing around yesterday arvo..couldn’t be bothered with salmon was having fun on the kahawai instead..but hooked a salmon anyway up in the gut..it was a heavy fish..big head shakes but some dickhead casted into my gear and ripped the hook out of my salmon…I was not a happy chappy..should have cut his gear off but didn’t have a knife on me..I hate the crowded mouths and that sort of shot shows why I avoid them…by the way is the average age of salmon anglers 85??? :lol: where is the newblood!!
