Each Southland river is unique. The reason for the number of patterns and varying quantities is not knowing if you are driven by a low number pack. If this is so you are a casual fisher. Six or more you are serious.
All trout on the South Island fight hard and get down and dirty very quickly.
No more so than on the upper Oreti, the middle section at Mossburn or the lower Lumsden section. This open flood plain river and the prevailing Norwest wind makes for terrestrial heaven. Cicada, blowfly and attractor patterns bring up the monsters. The match the hatch on this great river can be very frustrating, probably because we don't believe a fish so big will eat a size #18 grey or brown dun. If the dry fly fishing is good who cares about nymph fishing.
- Best Practice Tip: Keep level with the fish and side strain it to the bank.
