    Blue toby attached a nymph and I was set too go

    Chris mentioned blue tobys before,so I set up the flogged nymph with a foot of nylon behind the toby

    First cast,yup the nymph took the sardine but it was fun watching lure coming in with a wiggly little trout attached to the flogged nymph

    interesting dundee, is the nymph in front or behind the spinner ?

    spinner "chasing" something smaller (the nymph) would trigger something much bigger to have a go ?

    I had the nymph behind the spinner but if possom trapper gives me another I will try the nymph first this time.

    I have used this technique with flies before with some success .

    DD fish using this in Taupo.use a ginger mick attached to hook on lure. Ginger mick is a deadly fly in Taupo. If I'm jigging just use 3#ginger micks about 300 mm apart.
    Nothing like a Ginga mike

    Your not wrong Maca

    A Ginger Mick works well for me

    I've been using a sedge under a float with good success.

    Cheers

    Good work on making the Nymph too PT.

    I started making my own flies when I was about 10.

    My old man used to nick all my good flies too, but then he did keep me well supplied with fur and feathers and he did take me fishing so I suppose it was a fair trade.

    Cheers

    Ok Maca an P38 show me a pic of this ginga mick I could google it but I might be shocked

    PT lent me another nymph today and I had the lure chasing nymph he also joined me with his fly rod but buggered off an walked home as the wind got up a little after a while. PT still had to train pup,eat dinner, and go for a run so I stayed till 8pm.

    Anyway landed 3 tonight nothing on the nymph all were hooked on the black fury.

    Only tiddlers though,the nymph didn't look natural being chased by the lure as it looked like a stiff nymph not flowing free if ya get the drift. Might try the ginga mick fullas and baldbob I still might get a bubble float but I'm into spin fishing so this new phase won't last long with me

    Always willing to try new methods

    Not much of a fly man but is that a floating? Or a nymph?

    Tied in smaller sizes they do work well fished like a nymph, however they are classed as a streamer fly and are generally fished down stream with a slow retrieve to imatate a small fish.

    Green Orbits and Black or Red Hariy Dogs work well in Hawkes Bay too.

    Hairy Dogs are good at night and also when the water is getting dirty.
    They are my go to flies for the Ngaruroro when it's cloudy and at dusk or into the night.
