comments:

The hen rainbow shown at right was my only bite after 2 minutes of fishing with a wetlined rabbit fly Friday evening in the Tongariro River, at the upstream end of the mile long island between the Bain and Log Pools.
This was as good as any fish I've caught in the past 5 years, and is Trout Soup until the weekend.

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