The Outpost Fishing Reports

The Outpost Report: February 7, 2010

February 7, 2010 | 1509 Views

OUTPOST UPDATE FROM NEW ZEALAND…AT LONG LAST. I’ve been off the grid for the last couple of weeks and posting and uploading have been imposible. So here’s the short story; fishing in NZ is amazing, in fact the best trout fishing in the world but also is very demanding and requires a huge variety of skills to see, hook and land these wary trout. The rivers and fish are marvelous, here is a shot of me fishing the Ahuriri river

Below is a little stream called the Routeburn…small or large the waters are usually crystal clear and requires sunny days to be able to spot the fish. If you can’t see them you WON’T catch them so height off the river helps, as does shade and a nice back drop to cut down the glare of the sky. Here I am perched for sucess…

When everything comes together you hook up…I’m into a rainbow in this shot…

I’ve been fishing mostly dries and the take is always intense. Here’s a beautiful rainbow fooled by a Lambroughton spider and held by OP server Kaili Clay who has come over from Australia to join in some of the fun…

What a fish, most of the rainbows are from 3-5 lbs (this was 5+) with the browns getting a little bigger. Below is the reason I came to New Zealand…all ten pounds worth…

These fish are hard to believe, just look at the shoulders on this monster. Although I caught this one on a nymph its speculated that these beasts grow large by eating mice, mostly at night. All fish are released with no harm done…this place is a fly fishing paradise. Sweet dreams and I’ll be back in Canada before long with more updates.
