    Cool First for the new season

    The Manawatu River is still high after recent rain but the 1st of October doesn't change much on this river as it is open season all year. I went down just before dark and a few were rising, had one bite and lost one lure that I will retrieve when the water level drops.

    2nd of October 2014 day two off the new season. Weather warm with high winds and rain on the way.

    Waded back to the bank to meet my dog and try a soft bait. I cut off the treble hooks leaving just the one hook facing up where the treble hook was. This reduces snags.

    Still no luck with soft bait so I climb the bank too view the incoming weather looking towards the Southern Ruahine Ranges. By this time spots of rain were falling and the wind was getting stronger.

    So Me and the mutt headed towards the quad and decided to go over the bank in a different location from where I was fishing. Back where we started on the first day of the season.

    Pink lightning toby was the next lure attached to my 'Daiwa' telescopic rod and a few cast later the reel was screaming! Dog come back to see what was going on as I landed a nice rainbow.

    Love it 'Dundee' And your dog is so well behaved. My two lab are mad on fishing. The bastards get so carried away though. The scream of the reel is often overshadowed by my own scream as both dogs head into the water in pursuit of the fish.

    Several times I have lost a fish and caught the dog because the old bitch insists on catching it and bringing it ashore. She looks so miserable sitting holding her foot up for me to take the hook out of it. The pair of them are like seals when it comes to catching fish.

    Tryed all sorts of lures at a few that were rising.

    You are off form Dundee. You will need to do more of it.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
