Had a mate fish the mid reaches last week and did extremely well, many on dries and pretty decent in size! Funny old river she is.

Fished my favourite King Country stream and it's been hit hard by winter floods and I'm finding it really hard going in 3 visits.
Lots of trees down across stream and many old lies have been filled with gravel and too shallow. Spots that always had fish are empty?
Looked under lots of stones and found way less nymphs than usual but I'm sure it will come back but right now it's regenerating.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Yeah it is isn't it, I think the multiple floods early in the year  have really changed the river a lot, and funnily enough after a few very (fish) light sessions, the last was like the old days again.... go figure.

Well go figure, upper half of the Rua is really low, Wardells Bridge is @ 2.9 Cumecs which is really low, but anywhere south of the Waiohine junction is going well, and down around Martinborough I here is outstanding. Really worth a float fish I would guess if you can.

Sorry its been awhile, had a wee accident and taken a while to heal and walk any distance, however glad to see the Rua is fishing well, esp in the lower sections, got into a few fish last evening above Waddells Bridge, lots of cicada action but no interest in even my smallest cicada, but smashed the Adams paras.  they were not  that big, but in great condition maybe to young  to know what a cicada was lol.
Flow was really low @ 2.65 cumecs, but the fish are there if you can walk to the right areas.
 
My old favorite area is now a waste land with a "manufactured" featureless waterway down the middle , and a pile of metal  50m in diameter   out by the road. 
 
Info required Please, am heading to Christchurch this weekend, to see our second grandchild but mainly to teach the son in law to fly fish.... usually I teach wet lining first either small lures or wee wets on a floating line but in the same style.   I have had great results doing this, what I am asking is does anyone have local knowledge about where best to go at the moment?   anywhere with an hour or so is ideal.   Will drop into the locals H&F, but  he is very keen so don't want to waste too much time as its limited.
 
Cheers
