Mike’s experience means that his guided fly fishing trips are first-rate and professionally run. There are no compromises on quality of service or equipment. Typically we use five to six weight rods with floating line, and selected wet and dry flies.
Tours cater for up to three anglers, each trip includes tackle and return transport from Hobart to the lakes (two hours). Two and three day fishing tours, including accommodation and meals are available.
You may witness a trout feeding frenzy (water boiling with trout) caused by a sudden dun fly or gum beetle hatch. Rod and Fly is a Tasmanian Tourism accredited business, and a member of Trout Guides and Lodges Tasmania Incorporation. This is your assurance of quality.
