The weather patterns have changed and spring is on us. Now is a good time to be sorting out your fly fishing gear so it’s all ready to go come the opening of the new fishing season in 3 weeks time. Fix the busted bits, clean the dirty, tie or buy those flies you really need to re-stock the fly box and get some casting practice in on the new rod or the old faithful stick. Whatever you need to do if you haven’t done it — do it. Remember to get your New Zealand fishing license sorted!
The West Coast whitebaiting season is now underway and and there will be sea run trout and kawhai to hit in the estuary’s and mouths over the next while, a perfect time to get some of those streamers in action. Word has it the upper Clutha is fishing very well with rainbows being the sport. Time to leave the skiing in Queenstown for a couple of days and head over to South Westland via a session or two on the Clutha. A good time to get some kaimoana!
