Hi Damon.
Didn't quite get to the spot. But fished the stretch of water below the bridge on the gravel road. Had it to myself.
The reason I stopped was there was a large brownie under the bridge. Couldn't resist it.
Also a couple of fish in the run below the bridge pool.
Hooked one on a very small black nymph but lost it after 30 seconds. Story of my life.
No matter what I tied on the bloke under the bridge was having none of it.
I did take a drive along the nokoma road. A couple of spots taken but managed to squeeze in.
Same story no takers.
Will try the spot tomorrow. Thanks again for the info.
This north islander may yet land a southern brown. Roll Eyes
Cheers.

Well done Baz, hooking them means everything on that river at this time of year.
If you get one to take a fly, your skills are at a pretty good level I reackon.

Yeah those big ones under the bridges get all the attention all day long from everyone.

get to them first...or really late after dark with a woolly bugger.

Had heavy rain come through on the 6th-wednesday. So decided to catch up with an ex-culling mate in Invercargill.
Brilliant to catch up again after a decade or so.
Got some good info from Dave, and the plan is to fish the Eglinton at Te Anau and visit the Milford sound.
Cheers.

Baz your little sojourn  is a nice read thanks, and Damon it's good of you to share some secrets.  I'm still trying to put a trip together Baz so am keen to keep tabs on what you find.  I've had a fish on the Waikaia and the Mataura  previously and managed to drag one nice brownie out of there.  I am really interested in finding some less hammered streams but i guess so is everyone else.

Classic. Thanks
I'm no pro, and they aren't secrets to those that know them.  Spend a bit of time in any area and you'll find what you need. 
If its queens chain, you've paid a licence and you love the sport, then no reason not to get a few tips on the area.
I have enjoyed Baz's posts in the past, and he had better have some decent drone footage of some water very soon Grin

Sorry Damon.
I haven't packed the drone for this trip. Seems to be too many restrictions. If flying over a public road you have to have permission from NZ road authority.
Same with flying in DOC estate, you have to have a concession just like a commercial helicopter or a fixed wing.
It's getting too risky to upload to youtube.
Cheers for the comments.
