Tuesday Tongariro rainbow
The hen rainbows shown above and below were landed this morning and last Wednesday, and both were cooked to become Trout Soup. This morning's fish was bigger than recent average, but Wednesday's fish also was good.
Yesterday, a similar fish was lost, and the fly also was lost, under quite light pressure, after successfully landing the 03 June fish, so I don't know what went wrong with the knot.
All 3 fish were hooked on a size 8 Rabbit red, and my hookup rate continues to be close to 10 hookups per hour, and all 3 hookups were made before sunrise in the middle river reaches.
