A bit after dawn I turned up at Pt Chevalier and found another swoffer in the water ahead of me – obviously Auckland is becoming crowded!
The angler in this case was Chris, a new acquaintance, who was giving the spot a try on the recommendation of fly fishing guide Matto Von Sturmer.
We chatted a bit about our fly fishing experiences and eventually moved along to the one of the channels where the current flow was more focused.I finished off some left over pilchards into a berley trail and we both hooked a number of small kahawai and some snapper that didn’t quite make it to legal size.
My first snapper, aglow in the early morning sun.
All in all good fun for Chris as well:
