Chris on Penstock

Enticed by the Mayfly

A Mayfly emerger enticed this beautiful brown trout to Angus’ fly, one of a number of hook-ups on a day polaroiding Penstock Lagoon.

Angus and his dad Chris enjoyed an early Autumn day on Tasmania’s Central Highlands Plateau.

Brown trout shenanigans

This fit brownie got up to all sorts of shenanigans, just about pulling Richard out of the boat, and as well as completing a 360 degree swim around the boat.

Leven River

River Leven, late season dry fly fishing

Late in the season the Leven River provides an exhilarating wild trout fishing experience. The cooler temperatures, the clear water, the fabulous scenery of forest and gorge, and wild trout eating dry flies all make for a memorable fishing experience.

Located in Tasmania’s north west, there is good access around the Gunns Plains area. An excellent resource is the Inland Fisheries Anglers Access for the Leven.
