It’s been a cracking season so far, in the midst of sun and wind some excellent fish have managed to chomp the fly. Guiding has been a pleasure while meeting some fantastic people from all around the globe working to achieve their dreams. From river rafting trips on the Tongariro to hiking backcountry North Island rivers and streams, it’s all been fair game. Good fish have started hitting large dries on the surface like the Manic Fly Collection Swisher’s PMX. I’ve even managed to take time out with great company to snag a few a quality fish both in fresh and salt water.
