Where abouts were you fishing with Pat Redfinger?

I had another unsuccessful few days a week ago fishing Hauparu, West Bank, and down Hinehopu end, managed 2 fish across several hours fished. Same for those around me, so either I'm temporarily cursed or it was just another one of those things. Again plenty of fish sign, many fly changes, no dice....

Moose lodge was pretty good numbers but alot of small fish. We got most before 11 and after 3pm to coincide with bite times?
Tried lighter droppers and backbone which got more bites but that rig got slaughtered when the bite got good - bust offs, tangles - carnage.

Was planning another trip to Rotoiti to test  my new supplies of UV smelt flies.     Tied about 60 in all the proven colours.    With this quickly deteriorating virus problem it is not the fishing (best self isolation practice) but the accommodation and interaction off the water that is the worry for this old gezza.     Besides I would not like to be a link in the spreading chain either.     Will also have to can my winter trips to the Tonga for the same reason.    Luckily I can still sea-fish locally to keep us supplied with Kaimoana.     At home I have been extending my vege and fruit garden into a small urban farm over the years, which will come into its own in the coming months.     
As I see it the government is a step behind rather than a step in front in its response to this calamity.    Don't get mollycoddled by Jacinda's soothing rhetoric.   This is serious with worse to come.    So the more we can be self sufficient and rational in everything we do, hopefully the better we shall come through this as individuals and as families.   
Looks like I shall be tying more flies to pass the time while in self isolation over the next few months.

Yes Herb, they the govt is way behind the play. Their next step should be to control movement is to stop petrol stations from selling fuel. Then we would see this virus stop moving so fast . Without doing this NZ is going to be Grrr not a nice place to be, we are to confined. NZ has only 250 odd respirators. They closed many hospitals over the years when we only had 3 million  but now we have over 5 million a massive catastrophe awaits. Lee and I didn't get to say farewell to both you and Sue at Papa-Aroha, as you had already headed out before we left. 
The hunter from The kaweka's. Take care my friend.
