Lets go, hit some pocket water on the upper reaches of the Delitite at the Mount Buller Ski Field Entrance gate. Get the 4wt rod out and rigged. Not too long a leader, 9ft will do, and light tippet and not a large sized terrestrial - say #12,#14 hook size. 

Wade into the river and cast everywhere. If you have not caught 6 fish in half an hour, change the fly to a different terrestrial.  All the trout will be small but fun to catch and then release. The bigger fish are further down the valley in the farmland.   Small clouds of caddis hover in the still pockets of air.   Fish are rising underneath them and the Hot Creek Caddis pattern comes to mind.   If a refusal happens try a CDC Olive Caddis emerger.... good fish landed.   Looking like a great days fishing.

  • Best Practice Tip:  The next rising fish could be eating something else.
