comments:

Conditions for Taupo area rivers should be good for the weekend, though strong winds could limit casting for some anglers.
My most recent fishing was 22 July morning, when I kept the rainbow shown at right
I'll try again as soon as the Tongariro level drops 20

superfly.co.nz has 500 trout fly patterns, tied on Mustad, Kamasan, and Tiemco hooks.

Specific details:
Tongariro RiverWater volume and level are approaching perfect; wind speed sound challenging for nymphing, but no problem for wetlining
Other riversThe Hinemaiaia reportedly has produced limit catches of mixed quality rainbows during the past 2 weeks
