Thanks to Tongariro regular Glenn Good for the following update and to Terry Trout for some of the images taken earlier in the week. I fished on Thursday after noon up at the Kamahi for just one touch, the Breakfast Pool and the Blue pool for zip. The river was pretty colored up and you could only just see your feet at knee deep. I tried a big glowie on the edges but no luck. On Friday I fished the Waimarino river mouth first thing for one really nice fat jack but gave up after two and a half hours of bugger all else. I managed to get one from the head of Boulder Reach and then shot up to the ...

Some rain at last.

I was awakened in the early hours by a sound I hadn’t heard for a while … heavy rain. It’s a noise that always reminds me of growing up back in Wales.

Just a quick update. The rain and showers that were initially forecast for most of the week didn't hang around for long and the day or so of showers we did have made no difference to the river. Some bits and pieces of rain for the second half of the week and then its back to " summer " for a couple of days with a showery outlook for next week. Never the less some small runs have shot through and as is so often the case if you're right place ... right time you'll connect with a few and have some fun. Tight lines guys. Mike. ...
