So October has gotten off to a ripping start for most, with fish in most areas showing the condition of trout that have wintered very, very well. Tippet’s were broken and flies were lost so we asked Santillan De Pinto of Queenstowns new Hunting and Fishing store in Remarkables Park which patterns have been flying out the door these past few weeks...
Kyle’s Stone Green
Jakes Depth Charge Jig Worm
OTB Hare and Copper
Quill Spinner Brown
Galloup’s Sex Dungeon
Santillan’s thoughts on the coming weeks:
“Be prepared for possibly very changeable weather so keep a few larger nymphs such as green / red Simons Uglies and Kyles Green Stones as well as high water streamers like Galloups Sex Dungeons and Dores Mr Glister streamers on hand. Likewise keep an eye out for early falls of brown beetle and ever increasing Mayfly activity on top”
