Taupo Flyfishing Report 16 Feb 2012

Posted by admin on February 16, 2012

Well the Cicada season just keeps going and the fish are now getting competitive for the years biggest steak and chip meal !!!!

Just watching some of these big fish come and race across the current to smash these big dry flies is just awesome!!!! I get as much fun just watching peoples faces as these big mouths come out from the deep and engulf the dries, I love to see the faces of anglers when we put size 6# dry flies attached to 8lb leaders, “you gotta be kidding” sort of look !!!!

Its all on and it’s the best dry fly action I have ever witnessed!

Trophy Taupo Brown Trout on Cicada

We now have the Big Browns entering the river mouths over the next month and I predict its going to a thumper season for these big fish, we are witnessing a real potential trophy Brown Trout fishery evolving here at the moment with reports of big browns being caught from all round the Taupo region.
