Flies from New Zealand

Flies from New Zealand

Water and place: river Jizera in Czech Paradise

Date of fishing: 24.09.2014

Weather and water conditions: sunny windless weather, air temperature +18 C, weak wind, water temperature +12 C.

Fishing method: fly fishing, tenkara

Tackle and baits: fly fishing rod 10 ft 4–6 AFTM, floating line, tippet 0,14 mm, tenkara; flies: goldheads, kebari, streamers, parachute

Catch in total: brown trout, grayling

The biggest fish: grayling (Thymallus thymallus) almost two pounds

Special features of a fishing day: The grayling finally has started to eat and actively took flies before winter. For instance we began with rather smaller brown trouts in the shallow stream, however after moving to deeper river pools the fishing began more interesting. During whole day we shared “intercontinental” experience of fly fishing, even tied some fly patterns together! Grayling preferred that day the black body goldhead caddis nymph with purple “collar” – a typical New Zealand fly, which brought us several nice graylings. Client: Gareth Goodfrey, New Zealand
