One of my mates I play golf with says to me tonight - 'you know that water race that runs into the subdivision - saw a good fish last night while walking the dog'. Now I have stalked it before - but got put off by the kids fishing it, and running in and out of the pond on a warm night... You know where I am going to be when it gets fine eh?

Right on Jonathan's back door too.

Have found a few good quiet spots as of late both low and high. Thought we would visit the rangitata head last sunday afternoon and find a quiet spot. More people in messapotamia than in christchurch I reckon. Have certainly noticed the increase of people in the high country over the last few years in Canterbury, guess fly fishing is becoming increasingly popular every year. I reckon the key to a quiet day is to go up during the week when everyone else is at work.

Quentin - you will probably find that the number of angler's fishing the Rangi head waters will drop dramatically after Feb 28th, when Salmon fishing in the Western Zone in CSI finishes for the season.

Otherwise just get up there and be prepared to stake out a pool until the salmon anglers move on. Most evaporate unless they see a salmon by morning tea time and move on or head for their digs to take a siesta.

Funny isn't Tom, lovely water but bugger all fish!
