Much needed rain...

The last lot of rain that battered the country was much needed in terms of bringing the lake fisheries to life and giving the spawning streams a good clean out, encouraging some fresh runs. Now is the time to target shoreline Rotorua lakes or the Tongariro for some early spawning rainbows and some of the big browns which are still hanging around. Focus your attention on the upper reaches now of the bigger river systems now and use heavy, brightly coloured nymphs to induce those anger strikes.

I managed to get out on Friday night for some lake edge action and hauled out a few hard fighting rainbows, one of which was in ridiculously good condition. Make sure you get out make the most of a really interesting and special time of year to catch trout. 

If you are stuck at work or are doing Uni assignments like me, here is something that will keep your spirits up. Footage filmed in NZ by Frontsidefly
