Thanks to Wayne, from Tongariro River Motel, for a male rainbow landed on Friday.
That fish has become Trout Soup.
My own recent attempts were a 5 minute evening trip, with one fish missed and a different fish landed and kept, followed next morning by another 5 minute trip, which also produced one missed bite, and one kept rainbow.
but each produced one rainbow kept, after one missed bite.
Good conditions continuing this week seem likely.

Checkout is temporarily open at superfly.co.nz, with 510 trout fly patterns, tied on Mustad, Kamasan, and Tiemco hooks.
