    Sad Sad news. I wish all the best to Mike and his family going forward.
  3. I just talked with Chris and they won't be doing the expo for 2018. But he's hoping to have something in the works for 2019.
  4. Strike indicator

    I only fished the Taupo area so I'm not 100% sure on the rest of NZ "Strike indicators When you use a stike indicator, you can add only a dye or line floatant. A strike indicator is any synthetic or natural yarn and its means of attachment to the line or cast used by the person fishing as an aid to detecting a strike. It does not include any other material or any other object attached to the line or cast, or any synthetic or natural yarn to which has been added any material or chemical (other than a colour dye or surfactant line flotant preparation)." http://www.nzfishing.com/Regulations/RegulationsTaupo.htm
  5. Strike indicator

    I used it when I was in NZ since you can't use thingamabobers over there. It's pretty slick and worked very well. Couple local shops had them in stock.

    Welcome to the forum. Feel free to PM for any details of the local area. Good to have another Taff on the site. (Parents are from the Port Talbot area)
  9. Near Miss

    I had a trout save my life on the Crow many years ago. It was a normal super windy day on the Crow and as I was getting ready to walk up to the next pool I saw a fish rise in a tiny corner pocket. So I change my attention to that fish and work him after a first refusal. Just then a big gust hit and a large tree falls into the above pool. It hit so hard it sent a wake down to where I was.
  10. The First One

    Awesome congratulations

    Orvis Silvers for me. On season 4 with them and still going strong. A season for me is sitting streamside eating cake 40+ times a year.
