How is the Season shappingThe least we can say is that the Flyfishing season in the South Island is well under way The least we can say is that the Flyfishing season in the South Island is well under way and doing well even if we did not get the weather and rivers conditions that one can expect.
We started it with an obvious lack of water, levels were and still are very low.Last winter did not bring its usual coat of snow that maintains our rivers to acceptable levels
Fish are congragating in deep pools, and with salmon just about ready to come up it will not make the situation better.
Weather wise we had the kind of unconsistant situation, alternating dry periods or heavy rain changing gin clear waters in muddy flooding ones.
Despite of all theses adverse conditions guiding our keen flyfishing clients has been delightful and we already had some fantastic sessions.
Fish is there , all sizes, from 1/2 a pound to double figures.
Summer is now on and with longer and warmer days we can expect a good cicada season, and I hear that big MAMAS have been caught on mouse patterns.
This is for us the opprtunity to wish you all a very happy flyfishing year 2006, and wherever you are enjoy your time on rivers and do not forget to help us to fight against Didymo by washing all your flyfishing gear
