Hey All,

dscf0101.JPGMore rain today and all the rivers except the good old Waitahanui were blown out. The Nui had some good fish go through today as well.

Ross with another Tongariro monsterI talked to Ross from TRM today and we have decided to have a friendly (yeah right) contest held on the 23rd and 24th of August. Hopefully this will be an annual event and a trophy will be purchased for this auspicious occasion. It will be known as the Waitahanui/Tongariro River Cup. Basically guys on that weekend I want as many Waitahanui anglers as I can staying at the lodge,(this is a requisite) and Ross will have the same. Waitahanui Lodge anglers can only fish this river and TRM anglers the Tongariro. Heaviest fish wins. There will be a few spot prises as well. A barbi will be held on the Sunday at TRM in Turangi. Get in contact to book a room, I will reduce the room price that weekend so some of my Taupo Waitahanui anglers can stay. There might be a bit of slagging over this.

one released back from the WaitahanuiCome on lets show them what a good fish looks like!

Here is a photo of Ross with one of the bigger fish in the Tonagriro, I believe he took it as well, (smile)
