I’ve been out guiding fly fishing again over the last few days and have been targeting the rocky riffles of Northern Southland streams. As the day goes on the fish having been moving into these lovely little spots and feeding on a emerging mayfly. The sport has been good if you can find the older and more established looking riffles that have not been turned over by floods or had clean gravel or sand build up in them.
The weather has continued in the usual spring like fashion with plenty of wind around and frontal flicks every couple of days delivering a bit of rain (and snow). The weather looks pretty good at the beginning of next week so the fly fishing should be good.
Here’s a quick clip from the opening weekend:
