Summer has been a mixed bag around the country so far, so we have asked a few of our buddies over the next few weeks to chime in with what they have been using to get things done.
To kick things off we have the legend himself, Gary Lyttle of Fly & Gun Hunting and Fishing Taupo to drop his thoughts on what you need there right now.
Both local and back country rivers around the Taupo region are finally firing after the high levels over the Christmas period, the lakes especially with damsels now hatching in big numbers. My top river flies for the Taupo are, given the cicadas are not quite here yet, would be:
Black Swishers PMX
Death Metal Hares
Death Metal Pheasant Tail
My top Stillwater picks are:
Ritts Slimfast Damsel
Jakes Double Bead Rib Worm
Worked blind or presented to sighted fish you can guarantee Gary’s picks will always serve you well.
