Last December Red Tag Trout Tours had the privilege and pleasure of hosting Steve Starling, above, and wife Jo for part of their latest Tassie trip (see ‘Currawong Slam Achieved’).
Steve’s reflections and recommendations on fly/trout fishing our beautiful island are summarised in the current issue (#30) of FishLife on sale around the country. The article is titled The Tassie Trifecta (Streams, Lakes, Private). You can download it here, and be tempted to subscribe.
Here is some of the Red Tag assisted action along with Steve’s excellent overview in what has turned out to be the best written article I have seen in over 20 years promoting Tasmania’s wild trout fishery.
It is no wonder they call Steve a fish ‘guru’; he wrote that our next season 2017/18 will be a cracker based on that mid-last season experience and having been on the water up to the last weekend of April 201.
I can tell you I thoroughly agree with Steve’s early call! If you are a regular, planning a first time visit or a lapsed Tassie trouter then the next 2017/18 season is the one to do. Book early!
