Angler Update: Get Your Tasmanian Fly Fishing License Through Trout Tales

Anglers now have an even more convenient option for obtaining their Tasmanian fly fishing licences. 

Trout Tales Tasmania has become a licensed selling agent for the Inland Fisheries Service (IFS) - this means you can now purchase your IFS angling licence directly from us. 

Whether you're planning a spontaneous fishing trip or don't have your licence or phone on hand, we can now assist in the licence process ensuring you're all set for a great day of fishing.

Do you need a fly fishing license in Tasmania?

Obtaining a fishing licence is a requirement to fly fish in Tasmania, and also plays a crucial role in conservation and fisheries management. 

The funds generated from licence sales support vital conservation projects, habitat restoration, and fish stocking programs. 

By purchasing a licence, anglers contribute to maintaining healthy fish populations and ensuring sustainable fishing opportunities for future generations. 

Enhanced Convenience and Value for Anglers

Matt from Trout Tales Tasmania expressed enthusiasm about this new service: "It's fantastic for Trout Tales to be able to offer this as a service to our clients and visitors. It makes the process of our guests getting out on the water even easier, reducing some of the logistics as it adds further value to our all-inclusive fly fishing in Tasmania tours." 

Things to Know Before Venturing Out

Before heading out on your fishing trip, it's important to be prepared. 

Make sure you are familiar with the local fishing regulations, including bag and size limits for different species. Check the weather forecast to ensure safe conditions on the water. It's also a good idea to bring appropriate gear and supplies, such as sunscreen, insect repellent, and plenty of water. Understanding the specific habitats and behaviours of the fish you're targeting can also improve your chances of a successful catch.

When planning your fishing trip, there are several essentials to check to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience. Verify that your fishing licence is up to date and easily accessible. Inspect your fishing gear to make sure everything is in working order, including rods, reels, and tackle - which you can buy from our online fly fishing shop.

It's also important to check your boat or any other equipment you'll be using to ensure it's in good condition.
