    Hi Gerrit,

    I don't know if anyone has asked you this before in this thread so if so I apologise for not finding it - we are on Pg 613!!

    With your experience in catching Largies, are there any specific triggers that you have noticed over time that would indicate a good session coming up?

    I refer here to the different factors as below and perhaps you can provide input accordingly;

    Weather patterns - Before / After a cold front, Barometric activity Up/Down, Overcast/Clear skies, Wind conditions

    Flow rates - Low, Med, High - Recent changes to flow or steady flow over a period of time.

    Insect Activity - Hatch indicators, terrestrial or aquatic

    Visibility during catch window

    Best time of day

    Best time of year

    Catch areas - Top of pool below rapids / middle stretches / Tail end of pool above rim flow out

    Depth of typical lies

    Depth of fly when taken by the fish.

    I just thrashed this together with top of mind considerations. but anyone wanting additional info or comments to more aspects, please post.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you spent a day with Gerrit on the water? Worth it! I learnt a lot
