Hey All It can stop raining now! I am doing some cheffing at the Tongariro Lodge to keep my hand in there. Late this afternoon some poor angler got himself stuck on the Island outside the lodge in rising water conditions. In the end they had to get a helicopter in to get him off. […]

Hey All, Bit of a mixed bag out there at the moment, and not all the rivers are fishing at their best either! Mark Nola from Auckland fished the Tauranga Taupo over the weekend and reported that the Hens were nice and fat if not a little small but the Jacks were a little skinny. […]

Hey all, What a wild weekend that was. All the rivers by Saturday night were un fishable, including the ever reliable Waitahanui. This started to clear by Monday morning but was still coloured slightly. There were a few fish being pulled yesterday right throughout the river. The successful anglers were using large Glo Bugs in […]
