Easter Fishing Part 3 – Monday 9th April; Monday Fish #11, Wairau Diversion

I assumed the Wairau Bar would have been busy over Easter, so avoided it. I rode the motorbike down to below the Diversion Bridge to have a quick fish.

The water level was very low so I walked out onto the stones in the middle of the river.

I saw a lot of small fish, and used a rubbery lure that looked similar to an inanga that I thought might get taken by something. It didn’t.

The highlight of my time there was a fantail landing on my rod.
