We went to the Tekapo Canal on the South Island of New Zealand last week. The fishing was just insane until another COVID-19 lockdown hit, we barely made it back to Auckland. You never know what’s going to happen these days when you are traveling to fly fish.
I was using a Scott Radian 10ft 5wt, paired with the all-new Ross Reels San Miguel 5/6. The fly fishing method of choice was Czech nymphing. The biggest rainbow we caught was 24lb and some others were around 16-20lb. Talk about some big fish on a 5 weight setup! Here are some photos from our trip….
