December was a great month with hot hot weather and fish on the chew.
Not only were we blessed with the weather but I also had clients wanting something a bit extra out of there trips and keen to do overnighters.
Camping out is my favorite way to go fishing, no rushing, evening fishing, dawn fishing and being around the camp fire and with a few days up your sleeve it really allows us to get into some out of the way places.
Quinton Clark was keen to go somewhere out of the way and was prepared to do the yards, check out some of the fish he landed.
Although this was not our biggest fish this is one that stuck out in our minds, very hard to spot, on a hard drift and then when hooked it really didn’t want to come in too easy.
Yes if you want to walk in the these remote places you have to carry a pack, no heli access to this place.
And fishing water like this, awesome.
When you have 3 days up your sleeve there is no rush so time to boil the billy and have a brew.
A hulk of a fish.
We caught plenty more but i think you get the idea.
The Fisher’s were staying at Blanket Bay and although they were not hard core Fly Fishers they wanted an experience, a nice walk in beautiful scenery, Lunch in a great setting and of course a shot at catching a wild trout(hey that sounds just like fly fishing) well that’s what they got… check out there picks.
A great couple.
Who doesn’t like Lamb chops.
After a bit of playing around with a few deep rigs we hooked this guy and got him to the bank.
Another camp out.
Like I said camping out fishing is my favorite.
For people that are here for only a few days this is the way to get into some good almost unfished areas.
Another fish caught after dinner.
Some nice water.
A beautiful wee Brown.
Although Hunter(pictured) was the fisherman of the group everyone got a go and everyone landed several trout, a great trip with great people.
