Well I had a great day with 2 clients on the river the other day.It’s great when people want to have fun fishing and after all that is why we do it.
Jack and Scott, smiles all round the whole day.
We were off heli-fishing but the heli could not pick us up untill 9.30am so wanting to make the most of it Scott and I headed out early and had a beautiful morning and got a tricky Bow to the bank.
Just to be out would have been enough for Scott but like I say ”it’s a little bit better with a fish on the bank”
Scott would be the most animated guy I have seen on the river,it was cool and all about fun.Sometimes people are just concerned about how many fish they catch rather than style or coming so close that your heart nearly stops,or just being in a beautiful place eating lunch,to me that’s still fly fishing.
Yip,fly fishing I love it.
We return to home picked up Jack and the wife’s hoped in the heli and were off to fish a back country river.It’s a great way for the non-fishing companion to come and see the country side we fish in.The ladies returned to Queenstown for some lunch and shopping then jumped back in the heli for a scenic flight on it’s return to pick us up. Beleave me, every body is happy.
People are always amazed by how we can see the fish,but it’s kind of what we grow up doing and getting taught to do.
Fishing dry fly’s, it doesn’t really get any better,the fishing lately has been so much fun,trout slamming drys or coming up for a look and saying no to the first one then hammering the next fly on offer,the strike, this is a cool time of year.
Scott playing a healthy Bow.
Jack with a nice one.
We had quite a few chances with fish taking the fly but then not sticking but the boy’s were having a blast seeing action and having a few hard battles.
Away you go.
Great day, thanks guy’s.
