Watcha Mike

Thank you for the pics, it was very thoughtful of you to take the trouble to send them. It is unbelievably cold here at the present, the average day time temperature is 4º so I won”t be casting a fly for a while. I am glad you are busy and the trips have been productive. I had a great time fishing with you and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your consideration and sensitivity.

Rod & Fly has access to a private trout fishery in the picture-perfect Huon Valley on the edge of the Southwest Conservation area. The fishery, a one-hour drive from Hobart, offers prime Tasmanian trout fishing for both beginners and those with experience.

Rainbow trout and brown trout inhabit a series of lakes – from small to over two hectares. The fish vary in size from 1kg to over 4kg The fishery is spring-fed.

The fishery is an ideal setting to test newly learnt skills and casting techniques, so that when you are challenged by a slurping brown trout in the wild, you will have the confidence to make that perfect cast.
