Aussie Fly Fisher - Tasmania

With its remote and natural landscape, Tasmania’s interconnected lakes, rivers and creeks are a beautiful place to chase brown trout.

Since 1864, brown trout have flourished all over the island. The success of natural recruitment, makes it one of the wildest remaining strains of brown trout in the world.
