Penstock and Howes Bay
Couple of fish photos of catches over the Xmas New Year break. Fine Penstock brown 4lb caught a foot of the edge by a floating brown possum tail nymph, the take was barely perceptible. Just shows you mustn’t wade right in before testing what’s there. The two little rainbows came from Howes Bay Lagoon. They also took the floating nymph which is fast becoming the only fly I tie and use. They fought really well and had small heads and fat bodies. Smoked up really well. Had a great day at Carters yesterday, warm, slight breeze ,blue sky, water crystal clear and the fish were cruising. Hooked into 6 the biggest was around 4-5 lb a big buck the smallest around 2.5lb all caught again on the floating possum tail nymph. Polaroided some, fished up the others, all were released. Highland gold day.
