More internationals enjoy Tassie fly fishing

Singaporeans, Ko, left, and Jo enjoyed an introductory day of fly fishing where they wanted to experience wading and stalking small streams as they have nothing back home to compare. Here they appreciate a rest after a particularly hectic session where both got fish to the dry fly but missed getting them to hand. To his credit, Ko managed to … Continue reading More internationals enjoy Tassie fly fishing

Promises kept …

Gary (with fish on) and Keith (in background), great fishing mates, were travelling with their wives — self catering as much as possible, and although never having fly fished before, had booked a two-day introductory workshop and ‘sort of promised’ trout for dinner each day! This one ended up in a break-off on our teaching water – not the success … Continue reading Promises kept …

Luck of the Irish?

… or skill of the angler? I say skill! Paddy’s first go at fly fishing, first cast to a rising fish, first wild brown to hand AND on the dry! Very nice fish at that. Next (returning ‘Tagger) Vanessa gets her first of the trip – again sighted, stalked and excellent dry fly presentation. Vanessa also picked up this brown beauty at … Continue reading Luck of the Irish?

Successful introduction to the Fly!

Great fishing mates Andrew & Ben share the delights of Andrew’s first ever trout on the fly. A fit 4lbs+ wild brown taken on a small woolly bugger. Fish were feeding close in on the flooded margins of Lake Currawong. As you can see from the hook up, these fish are fossicking amongst the tussocks in shallow water, often seen … Continue reading Successful introduction to the Fly!

Worst day’s weather—best day fishing

Just ask young Ben from New South Wales – his first day ever fly fishing and this was one of four big wild rainbows to hand, for the afternoon! Another four had a go at his fly, but spat it. From hook-up to hand … Ben’s concentration and skill level didn’t falter. Plus a well earned ‘thumbs … Continue reading Worst day’s weather—best day fishing
