Recently I was lucky enough to get out with Blair Daniel, a super-experienced South Island fly fisher, tier and outdoors legend and the man on the scene at Hunting and Fishing Nelson.
Expect to see more of this man!
As the river lowered throughout the day a few fish were found in softer edges and backwaters. A couple being fooled by green caddis imitations and my go-to Death Metal PT #16.
Still a wee bit chilly in the mornings for my liking but Simms G3 waders made life as cosy as an Auckland office for me.
