A beautiful winter morning in Turangi, not a breath of wind and a light frost. Gail rang me from the
" Rock Garden " at Whakapapa and it was packed with families making the most of the sunshine as the school holidays come to an end. All the Dads must have been with them because I only saw two other anglers during the couple of hours I was on the river. Some good solid jacks around this morning and I took several fish out of one 30ft stretch that gave me some right old scraps. I had to stand in the middle of the river to reach the lie and after hooking up then had to make the slippery wade back to the bank to land them. I think I lost just as many as I landed but I'll let the pics tell the story. Most took the bomb or a buggy looking Size 12 nymph.
