My curse with lake Okataina is broken, I have been trying to catch a trout on this lake on and off for over 15years. From boats to fly fishing and now form a kayak I have finally done it! :)
Every other lake in the Rotorua district hasn't been a problem but this fish on Okataina have beaten me every time until this morning :y:

Hopefully lots more to come this lake is a kayakers paradise

Thanks
I was jigging, used 2 size 10 flies spaced about 600mm apart. 1 fly was a Parsons glory the other a ginger mick.
