We've been having a tough time with only one in three days of decent weather. However, when the sun shone, trout came out to play. A keen Nor'wester can test you're casting skills to the limit and if you're able to cope with such grueling winds then the rewards are high. Half a day on the Oreti brought a couple of spanking trout before the gale became too unbearable. Then we winged down to the Waikaia to find willow grubbing trout.
