Roy and Gail with ‘Red Tag’ Ray (centre) after a successful session at Currawong Lakes.
Where was that lunch bite …?
On Ray’s arm … Blue Damsels both top trout and welcome swallow menu items.
Gail on to another wild brown river fish. Both had a top day on the river.
Top trip over four days/3 nights at Currawong Lakes, beautiful accommodation, great fishing and wild life a plenty.
Tony hadn’t held a fly rod for over 25 years, so day 1 at the March fly fishing workshop was a must do – plus he picked up the Hurley’s Fly Fishing world fly boxes gift pack.
Day 2 was onto the rivers, his love of same renewed with a first-up nice stream fish with Ray again doing the netting honours.
With some tight spots at times, the pressure was on –
Plenty more success for Tony – a very successful return to the fly!
See our workshop flyer below – January, February, March & April dates all have spots open to get into Fly Fishing.

You’ll never – never know if you don’t have a go.
Following the great support we got from the Tasmanian fishing community learning and developing their Fly Fishing skills last season, Red Tag (Roger & Ray) are again combining with Ken Orr’s Trout Expeditions and The Highland Fly (Nick May) to offer one a month until April ‘22 – see flyer – for actual date each month and activity details.
Our sponsors are again providing great support for our workshop ‘Lucky Gate’ prizes and ‘Gift Bag’ dips, so there is much more to gain than fly fishing skills.
Early bookings recommended.
Was Nick’s first time on the fly in the rivers, having spent previous trips on the lakes. This was a top steam wild brown 2+lbs excellent condition and first for the season on the Blue Damsel. Ray on hand with the net.
Playing the big one
Targeted wild brown
Next hook up – this time on the mayfly emerger.
Another top wild brown – Nick amazed at the size of the fish in such shallow runs!
Top team effort, Nick on the rod – Ray with the net.
The day was an early Christmas present from Nick’s wife and the plan was to gradually increase the degree of difficulty for Nick during the day to maximise his faster water introduction – with five to hand (all on the dry), a couple dropped and some fast water misses, it turned out a top day.
It is always rewarding when all goes to plan!
This was another great workshop/introduction to fly fishing day.
A bit windy, some rain … but fish to fly and to hand.
Some first timers on the fly getting ‘on grass’ instruction
Peter with his first ever on the fly to hand
Fantastic support from sponsors – TFO Fly Rods — Tonic Eyewear – Spot-On Hobart – Hurleys Fly World Melbourne
Youngest fisher Harry came in equal top rod for the day – one of his successes.
Rod was the other top rod of the day – one of his fish a very good wild brown.
