This is Tim, novice fly fisher wanting to improve … Continue reading A varied bunch get good results
Sally and Matt purchased our fly fishing package as part of a ‘Tasmania tour’ Pink Cup cancer day in Queensland.

Nice … Continue reading Top workshop for first timer!
Geordie, son, and father Alastair, on far bank, were an interesting and delightful workshop challenge. Geordie had seldom fished, let alone fly fished and Alastair last used a heavy (# 7wt he thought) cane rod back about 25 years ago! By lunchtime, not only had they caught their first fish each, but wanted to prove … Continue reading More May Moments of Merriment
