Tassie midwinter workshop?


You bet! Father and son David and Justin from Queensland wanted to try fly fishing while down in Tasmania for a midwinter break, and look what happened. Tried out a private fishery called Red Banks for the first time, less than an hour’s run from Hobart, and very pleased with the results.

To start with David gets his first ever trout, above, a nice rainbow, to hand on the fly.

Then not to be outdone by Dad, Justin is releasing yet another rainbow, below, he has taken on the fly.


Both had a great day and you can see from this shot of Justin bringing one under control, that it was a great day weather wise as well. Who says Tasmania is cold and wet all winter?
