Last night the weather was looking dodgey south of the Ruahine ranges.
I decided to head on down to the Manawatu river for a fish anyway and chucked my wet weather through the arms of my pack.
Sighted plenty of good fish and landed one.
Even after a small fight I always give the line a tug as the knot can weaken.Only the second time a snap clip has failed me.
Would of been really pissed off if I hadn't checked and got another bite.
