The rainbow shown at right was hooked on my 1st and only cast of a
Woolly Bugger grizzly&black
very early this morning nto the Tongariro River's Bridge Pool.
That was my 1st fishing attempt in a very long time, but the ex-rental waders I bought from a local sports shop, now closed, leaked in the 1st inch of water, and I now have 2 decent looking pairs of chest waders, both with bad right boots.
