Flood waters going down.

Postby Dundee » Fri Jun 26, 2015 5:59 pm

The Manawatu river by our run off was bloody high when we got back from our road trip.It was a few metres higher in 2004 floods so the flooding down stream was expected.

I am a trout whore,I try when the rivers are high.The river hadn't dropped much today since the floods it has been up and down a bit but I gave it a flick. :)
Have hooked three since the floods but nothing landed. :|
Jaycobs pool late this arvo,is not what it usualy looks like. :o

I wacked on this lure after a few changes.

Image

Last day for the parries so had the shotty with me.

Had a decent hit but the tention was a bit light and the hook never held in the rainbows gob :(

Image

Fished another ten minutes when the above lure got snagged in a papua shelf in the river.

Fark it strip off and go get my lure :oops:

Got as far as my knees which ain't very high :) The snow melt from the Ruahines was friggen freezing so I busted the nylon and ditched that idea.

By god I have crossed a few snowmelt rivers at this time of the year on tiptoes. You are just about through the deepest part and a pressure wave splashes the nutsack!!!!!!

Barry Crumps line comes to mind. "He was about as welcome as that first boot full of cold water on a spring morning".

Harden up DD. I was in the Kaimanawas last weekend, with 2-4 cm of snow on the ground and hard frosts each morning. There was a family of 5 camping on the river flats who swam each day.....skinny dipping at that. Two of them were just toddlers.
We all sat in the hut with the fire going and admired them from afar

They would have been self flagellating German tourists Pengy. I am surprised that they didn't ride bikes with Lanier bags into the place.
