Hi Guys, I managed to get out with a friend in his boat on Tuesday, we hit the chanel markers in the Rangi chanel in Auckland armed with fly rods and some flies.
I managed my first ever kingi on fly.

and one a bit bigger

Nick got some as well

We had a ball landing about 8 and loosing a few as well, these fish may be small but they go like a frieght train!
Anyway I can hardly wait to try again!
All the best.
Mike

Hi Mike,
some envy on this hemisphere. Looks as if the two of you had a great time.
We have a cold spell for the last two weeks or so. Some serious ice even on the Baltic and the North Sea. So all there is left is fly tying and hoping for warmer weather,

Hi Hares ear, if it's that cold I can see why a bit of envy might set in. To be fair here in Auckland we have had the worst summer for years, the last couple of weeks have been good but prior to that it has blown hard and rained since about November.
If it gets realy cold you should think about shooting down this way for a fishing fix!
All the best.
Mike

Mike,

Like Hare's Ear I can only say: envy, envy!

The winter has just turned up a notch or two the latest weeks, and now we have ice almost all over the place. No fishing here. Fly tying, photos and GFF articles. That's m'life! And some work, a bit of food, some sleep and a few other things...

Martin
