Hey All, I was up super early yesterday morning, had a quick look at the flow for the Whanganui River due to all the rain the day before and made the call to John that we should go ahead with the guide. This was a birthday present for his son Malcolm who had just taken […]

Hey All, God what a terrible couple of days on the rivers! I guided for a full day yesterday, trying the Tauranga Taupo, a small flick in the Hine and then a small stint on the Waitahanui. We only managed two fish all day, I hate that. The Tauranga Taupo looked fabulous and we were […]

Hey All, Well we are at the end of the winter season now and it should be a good time to reflect on how it was. Overall the trout in Lake Taupo were in much better condition compared to last year, (couldn’t have got worse though). The size limit has been reduced to 40cm now […]

Hey All, I have walked the Waitahanui twice over the past two days. There is no angling pressure on there what so ever. The bottom reaches are reasonably quiet trout wise but there are good numbers of trout in the middle and upper pools. Going for a good long walk up to Black Fish, flick […]
