Matt Stone

Fly fishing guide and owner of Trout Tales Tasmania.

For over twenty years I’ve developed my passion for fly fishing, wild trout and for the amazing places experienced in Tasmania along the way.

After many years of early morning starts, long days on the water and endless lessons learned from unforgiving trout -I have accumulated a deep knowledge of the intricacies fly fishing in Tasmania presents, and what it takes to be successful in this truly a special place that I call home.

What excites me about being a fly fishing guide is the opportunity to combine my passion and knowledge of trout fly fishing in Tasmania with my experience in the hospitality and tourism industries as a qualified chef to create all-inclusive, unique and highly personalised guided fly fishing tours in Tasmania.

I hope you will join me for an unforgettable journey to create your own Tasmanian fly fishing 'trout tale' that will last a lifetime.

Nick May

Fly fishing guide and owner of The Highland Fly

My name is Nick May. I aim to offer you a memorable experience of Tasmania, its fly fishing, its scenery and, most likely, its highly changeable weather, all of which, I hope, culminates in catching one of Tasmania’s wonderful trout.

I have fished now for more than 50 years, including 25 years of fly fishing in Tasmania.

I hold Australian Tourism Accreditation, First Aid certification and appropriate certification from AMSA to operate my boat.  I also hold all appropriate insurances.

In 2018 I established the Highland Fly, a one man operation but part of a network of professional Tasmanian fishing guides that specialises in trout fishing in Tasmania.

My business has taken past tourism experience and knowledge, my understanding of business and organisations and has linked them, most importantly, to my long standing love of fishing and my love of Tasmania.

Peter Stone

Fly fishing guide

Growing up in Northern Tasmania presented the opportunity to start my fly fishing journey on many of Tasmania’s iconic rivers, which began a lifelong passion for trout fishing in Tasmania. After moving to Southern Tasmania, the lakes of the Central Highlands region became a greater focus, and over the course of 40 years, I have developed a deep understanding and respect for the rugged wilderness locations that the wild trout inhabit.

What excites me most about guiding in Tasmania is showcasing the sight fishing opportunities that we have available for the majority of the trout fishing season. I particularly enjoy dry fly fishing and spotting fish and believe that there is nothing more exciting than watching a trout rise to a well presented fly.

I look forward to sharing some time out on the water with you in Tasmania’s world class fly fishery.
