    Default New Zealand 2014

    Hi there everyone just finishing up in New Zealand has been a great few weeks ! We learnt a hell of a lot and saw some awesome stuff . Caught some big fish and also lost some big fish. Had a few blank days on tough rivers and had some aweosme days on other rivers all in all it was incredible and can't wait to do it again . Thanks to all the people of the forum that helped out with flies , lines etc .... And thanks to the guys at winelands fly fishing , upstream fly fishing and frontier fly fishing for all their help and advice here are some pics .

    I think the photos make it look lighter than it is ... its a khaki colour and had fish chow the dry under the rod tip with no fly line out the eyes yet so seemed to work alright .... but i see where you coming from

    Amazing stuff Russ, and congrats on an amazing trip.... Love those images and fish from that super skinny spring creek water... judging by the terrain, water, and size of fish, I'm assuming that was fishing with Miles? Very jealous, something I've always dreamed of doing... thanks for sharing!

    Sorry.
    I have been lucky to be to NZ twice - once for Worlds, once for work. A VERY special place.
    My biggest trout was a 8.7lb South Island Brownie who ignored everything else for ~over 20 minutes, but moved more than a metre to fetch a RAB which landed WAY off course due to horrendous winds.
    This was the only fish which took a dry on S. Island during that trip.

    Sitting at Newlands, watching the rain fall on the covered pitch, this photo's are just perfect to enjoy. Thanks for sharing the experience.

    Now I wish I brought my fly tying equipment along to keep myself busy while waiting for some play to happen.
