Guided Fly Fishing - Simone Hackett

Wednesday, 13 Jun 2018

We were indeed entertained last Thursday evening, especially if you were a keen trout fisherman, by Simone Hackett who is a fly fishing guide in one of the most picturesque areas of Tasmanian high countries.

This is where the water starts from springs in the mountains and runs down the rivers over granite sandy bottoms and gives great clear water trout fishing, this is mostly sight fishing and leads to exciting catches.

People from all over the world come to try their luck at our cunning trout and will stay in Tassy for long periods to take in this beautiful scenery.

Simone showed us a video which even if you were not into the fishing side of the sport, should not have been missed for the scenery of the lake country.

Thank you for your talk and I feel that the questions fielded by most Rotarians were an indication of how important this sport is to Tasmanian Tourism.
