Had a crack at the French nymphing with the slinky indicator this arvo .
First time i have rigged up properly and concentrated on only casting a long leader ,indicator and flies .
Took a little getting used to with all the high sticking and staying in contact with slinky/flies but with a little practice it will be pretty simple .
It is definately an effective way of working all the little pockets ,rifles ,etc .
Went well with the 9' rod and 3 fish were landed before changing back to my usual set up .
The fish kept slashing at the slinky so the usual dry with nymph dropper was rigged up .
My first properly French nymphed trout .

Have also been using circle hooks for some nymph's .
Great when you are slow on the strike as they usually lodge themselves in somewhere before the fish spits it out .

Not much left of the dry by the end of the session but it still tripped up this little fella .

Had a good session this arvy with the water flowing at 200ml/d .
Perfecto :D
Tried only one dry as i had heaps of action on the nymph and they were eating them pretty freely .
Even moving up to 2m from station to inhale the offering .
The dry was a grey klink hamer but only a few were nabbed on the dry and most of the action was on the #16 brown nymph .
Image
A few good ones came to the party .
Thought this pic captured the moment .
Image
This one sulked at my feet for a good five minutes and i even landed yet another fish whilst he recovered .
Image
Another good fight from a deep pool .
Image
This one was also memorable .
Image
There was a surprisingly good splattering of fish to 2 or more pound .I did miss a few nice ones :(
Image
28 fish with only 2 on the dry .
Can't have evrything crazysmilie

Thanx fella's !
The rain is falling which is great for the lure fisherman smckin
I nabbed 42 fish in my usual 4 hours yesterday arvo and most were on the dry .
Was meant to be working but the house overlooks a section of private river (Tyenna) i have never fished .
The fish were even rising in the faster rifles so after watching through the window instead of working i packed it in and got kitted up .
Only fished for no more than 200m aswell .
When i bashed out (30 seconds) i was still in his paddock .
The new property owner will be well chuffed with the head of uneducated fish droolsmilie

The fish was the best of the session and also the last fish for the day .
Probably around 3lb as she was mega fat and super fit !
She took the dry in the fast water and gave up a reel tussle having to be landed down stream .
I love the chunkies cww

Thats a chunk alright clapclap
Good fish on fly and hard to land in most rivers. Sounds like a great job when you can knock off early for that droolsmilie
I'm presuming you are allowed back as long as you leave one on the doorstep for the owner thumbsupsmilie

Water looking good

Have made a deal with Tim the owner to leave a few for him .
He actually chucks some fluff but never for the trout .
A couple tips and he should be amongst them smckin
Still hammering rain here but its meant to clear to a nice weekend thumbsupsmilie
