Thanks to Ian and Brent from Elite Builders in Auckland for reporting good catches in the lower Tauranga-Taupo, on globugs and Humpback Boobies.
The lower TT, between the river mouth and Highway One Bridge, seems to be full of fresh rainbows.

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