    Rainforest Jewel

    The long trip down the warm coastal strip with its acres of swaying sugar cane fields,
    & large wide mud brown waterways are behind me now.
    Eucalyptus scented the cool mountain air.
    Moist morning mist soon dispersed leaving a cloudless, blue sky day.



    Promised myself earlier in the season I would return to this little jem with a 2wt in hand & I did.



    All browns....a bakers dozen came & went...I fished on, enjoying the surrounds & willing mouths.




    My grumbling belly reminded I had skipped breakfast, so I sat down on a moss covered rock, mid stream,
    & ate a belated breakfast.......content.
    A few more pools & runs beckoned....as they always do....then I slowly climbed up through the old stands of rainforest, back out to the car park. A new favourite added to the list.





    After lunch, a quick session on another stream with a much easier access, just 100m from the dirt road.
    Seemingly rainbow only water....slower session, but fruitfull all the same.




    All fished out...until next time

    Very nice. "All fished out" ?--- What does that feel like? Sounds scary. I hope you recover quickly. ;-)

    Wow, I could feel it.

    Like I wrote the story, took the pictures, felt the presence and enjoyed the scene.

    We are truly brothers in this and I would love to actually be there even though you already took me there.

    You know?

    Thank you for your style of reflection, in these days of haters and real fly fisher "men", I want to experience fishing like you, like us. ...and you are so far away but so close to where I wan't to be.

    Take care and thank you for sharing.

    Fishing trout in a beautiful stream surrounded by fern trees, in a forest scented with eucalypus.
    Simply fantastic!
    Thank you for posting.

    Great impressions of an exotic looking (for me) smallstream fishery!
    Thank you for this trip report. You made my decision to go out tonight ;-)

    Love the place where the stream runs thru the gras in front of the trees.
