In Tasmania, we don’t have to travel too far to find beautiful rivers, streams, and lakes.
Here on a blue sky day we can see the fish with polaroid sunglasses. Also take note of the shade created by the overhanging tea trees where there are beetles falling and trout feeding.
Look closely to see the slow main current seam passing the tip of the shady area. This is known as a bubble line and that’s where trout food is concentrated.
In these very calm conditions, find the trout feeding first and only then make a presentation with your fly.
