FLY FISHING, LURE FISHING
Tours are designed to take a small group of ONE or TWO anglers to a pristine coastal rivers or estuary targeting salt and fresh water fish with either lures or fly fishing.
SPRING and EARLY SUMMER
From the start of September through to Xmas whitebait run up our Tasmanian estuaries into the rivers and provide us with a fantastic opportunity to target resident trout and sea run trout crashing through the whitebait schools making this some of the most exciting and challenging fishing in the world. Bream also run up into freshwater during this period and some hugh Southern black bream can be caught. Add to this Atlantic Salmon escaped from local fish farms and dozens of other species and you can really have a ball lure fishing and fly fishing during this period.
SUMMER and AUTUMN
Big black bream, resident river trout and many other estuary species provide the feature fishing during this period. Dont forget this is the time for sensational summer trout fishing with a dry fly in the Central Highlands and with calmer weather this is one of the best times to be fly fishing Tasmania.
