Matt from Trout Tales recently joined Gav from Hurleys to showcase some of Tasmania's best fishing spots on the television show On The Fly.
It's no secret that Tasmania boasts some of the best trout fly fishing in the world - and Matt from Trout Tales has recently been helping to highlight this to television viewers recently on the popular On The Fly fishing show on 7Mate.
Joining with Gavin Hurley and the Hurley's Fly Fishing Crew, the episodes in season two of On The Fly feature three of the best fly fishing locations in Tasmania's central highlands region. Focusing on dry fly fishing and sight fishing opportunities available throughout the warmer months of the Tasmanian trout fishing season, the crew managed some fantastic fish and captured some great footage to highlight what a special place Tasmania is to fly fish for wild trout.
With a shared passion for trout fishing in Tasmania, Matt and Gavin have worked together professionally for several years to promote fly fishing to anglers of all experience levels, provide world class fly fishing packages to guests and endorse the excellent range of Stalker fly fishing gear produced by Hurleys Fly Fishing to give anglers all the tools to be successful out on the water.
Targeting different times of the day from dawn to dusk, Matt had a fantastic time helping Gavin and the team navigate the variety of lakes and lagoons fishing in Tasmania's central highlands has to offer, showcasing a range of dry fly fishing options for both brown and rainbow trout.
Current episodes of fly fishing in Tasmania featuring Matt include:
Season 2, Episode 10 - Herne Lagoon
Fantastic sight fishing to trout feeding heavily on hatching mayfly duns in shallow lake margins.
Season 2, Episode 7 - Woods Lake and Pine Tier Lagoon
Some great examples of 'loch style' fly fishing in Tasmania, using a drifting boat to cover feeding fish throughout the lake and making the most of opportunities as they present.
Season 2, Episode 3 - Great Lake
Some of the best sight fishing available in Tasmania is early morning midge fishing on Great Lake. Stalking rising fish mopping up small midge and other insects provides for a memorable morning.
