I enjoy nothing more than walking up a river that’s new to me. The thought of a new beat on a new stream resembles the anticipation I felt as a child leading up to Christmas morning. Today’s walk was perfect, a river to yourself, great weather and good fishing.
Stay tuned for more early Christmas reports from the South Island.
I brought down a Sage Circa 5wt, a bunch of new flies and Rio’s New 13.5ft Suppleflex Leaders. Today’s stick was a 590-4 ONE, with 10-15 MPH winds it was the best choice. Hopefully the weather will settle a bit and I will get some casts, comparisons and catches in with the Circa.
