I had a great time fly fishing with nymphs for a few hours on this gorgeous fall day for wild brown trout. Trout really get active before they spawn and the colder temperatures of winter set it. I happened to time this day just right, and had a blast catching a few trout.
Fall fly fishing is a site to behold in the east coast. The air and water are cooling down and the trout are on the feed before their winter slumber. Here's a short video of a wild brown trout I caught nymphing a small pocket in a small creek.
This was only the 3rd or 4th trout I casted too in New Zealand. After a good bit of walking we stumped upon this large rainbow feeding heavily on tiny mayflies beneath this willow bush. A few changes to the rig and it didn't take but the right cast to get him looking up.
