New Video! AS IT HAPPENS: “Cicadafaction”

You might want to watch this one on a larger screen, like the Youtube app on your Smart Tv as the colors of this setting are stunning.

Every year we run into cicadas in New Zealand. There are 42 species of cicadas in New Zealand that inhabit quite different ecosystems and each has its own size, color, shape. They all have one thing in common though – an unmistakable chorus! The big green cicadas of the beech forests can leave you yelling to hear each other, while the smaller light green cicadas are usually lighter songs on a breeze through the grass. No matter, Kiwi trout love them and travel considerable distance to pounce when they’re on the water. Amelia finds a fun, colorful, active trout on a spring creek to play with. Some neat moments and a few tips to help you as well. 🙂

    well done, I can’t understand in clear water you can use 2X and not get refusals. great job! going down the bank to get into position would be my biggest mistake. Do you two ever do any trips with customers.??

      It’s all really dependant on the size of fly – if such a big bug is being imitated these fish usually focus on that and not the tippet so you can get away with 2 or 3x and have a better chance at catching and landing them. We do 2 weeks of guiding each season (done for this year). If interested for next season please email once you have an idea of your dates for next. Cheers!
