Mid way between Hobart in the South and Devonport in the north, the Highlands of Tasmania have amazing wildlife and some of the best fly fishing lakes in the southern hemisphere.

Beautiful scenery, peaceful countryside, majestic mountains of Ben Lomond and Wellington, the high plateau of the Central Highlands and the last major tract of temperate rainforest on earth to rich rolling hills and farmlands of the lowlands, Tasmania links to old England and Scotland are clear to see, but with eucalyptus trees and unique wildlife!

The lakes, creeks and small rivers literally teem with wild brown trout and rainbows, introduced almost 200 years ago. Some of the purest strains on earth. The quality of the fly fishing on still and flowing waters is unrivalled and the season long. One of the main benefits is that the Tasmanian summer falls during the UK winter. Tasmania has a strong affinity with the UK, both historically dating back to the 19th century when thousands were transported as convicts to ‘Van Diemen’s Land’ and modern day.

Guided fly fishing is most important here. You waste no time accessing the best lakes and streams with a knowledgeable local guide. Whilst is is possible to fish from the shore of some lakes a boat and guide is highly recommended.

Tasmania has the best of Australia all in one compact easy to explore island.
