August 01 rainbow

Only 2 anglers fished the Tongariro's Bridge Pool early this afternoon, when brief hookup was lost, followed by a successful landing and release.
No other anglers could be seen for 800 meters up and downstream.
The rainbow shown at right was kept from my most recent attempt, on 01 August.

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