Mayfly fishing

John and Harry experienced some of Tasmania’s best mayfly fishing on Pentstock Lagooon and Four Springs Lake.

Another day was on the Meander River, where small mayfly and grasshoppers were the flies of choice.

A couple of the lovely fish caught during their fishing trip, early March.

Bucket list brownie

A magic moment for Phil, whose bucket list included fly fishing. This magnificent brown sipped down his stationary red spinner in the glass and all hell broke loose!

March nymphing

Mid March, good rains and flow, along with colour in the rivers, and good nymphing techniques bring in fish that won’t look toward the surface.

Wading skills, positioning on the river, and really good line control are needed.
