Started With A Rainbow

I managed to squeeze a day out yesterday to cast a fly on the Mooi River. Up high, where its a few rod lengths wide, at best, with bigger pools here and there. 

It was a day full of changing weather conditions, rain and squalls. Not ideal. 

It did, however, start out with a beautiful rainbow. 

I even got a dozen or so fish and ended with quite a nice wild brown on my new rod. 

After the photo it was properly revived and it swam off unharmed but a little wiser for the experience. A decent fish on a dry fly is always rewarding and exciting. 

This is the pool it came from. 

I love it where the river runs over a lip and leaves you with a window into the river. My camera doesn’t really pick it up properly. 

All in all not a bad day out. 

Not a great day, mind you.  The kind that makes you want to head back at the first opportunity.
