Wooden boats & wild trout … a special Tassie experience

Warwick comes down to Tassie for his ‘on water and in water’ fix every two years. After two days at the Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart this is his first run … 1st fish on day 1 of two days stalking wild trout.

It was the only one of some 35 to the fly that was not on the dry — this one on a #14 copper bead-head dark brown nymph.

Warwick’s #3wt got a real work out over the two days on two different waters.

This one was a ‘snuggler’ but it was put back with its friends.

“Went that a way … but finally netted it”.

Warwick ended up with the best two days of the season so far!
