Very well done benhohnke - so you have the fly fishing bug then:)

What fly did you use to catch this wonderful fish?

caught the fish on a scotch poacher!
anyflys with a bright pink or orange pattern should work well.
im pretty sure my mate adam who took me fishing was using a Taihape Tickler
he got 2 that day on it and lost one.
since this first fish ive now caught 14 fish on fly.
1x carp
13x rainbow trout, the first trout on fly was a good kilo plus fish which i took last winter in tasmania, and the second was a 1.6kg rainbow from around my area an exceptional fish for the area.
