It was a beautiful Sunday morning, looked like a perfect day to search for some new fishing spots.
Sheeps must be feeling good under the sun shine and so am I.
Heading to the same big river but to more up stream like upper part of the lower reach for the first time.
The monster river, Clutha.
Spey fishing on the South Island's biggest river. It is challenging but fun!
As soon as I started fishing, a wee brownie took my new fly that I tied for sea-runners, which was good to know there were fish to take as I had never fished the spot before. But after that nothing much happened there.
Just went back to the same spot as I tried a week ago again.
I couldn't get any bite again even though the river looked pretty good.
And then, tried the river mouth at the end of the day. A local family was spin fishing at my favorite channel spot. So I had to stay away from them fishing a bit up stream, and No luck.
On Monday, I took my switch rod and went back to my home river to spend some time for Skagit casting on the water again.
Nice and quiet afternoon on the water. Hopefully have some chance to catch some fish.
Like yesterday, caught a small brownie on the same fly again.
"Hmmm, where is a good one?"
No other fish bit on my fly.
It is fun to practice Skagit casting and I really wanna master it to extend my fly fishing technique in this new area. But at the same time, I just wanna fish more, always wanna catch good fish.
