Have you always wanted to try your hand at fly fishing? Then get to learning the ropes with Rod and Fly Tasmania.
Take a fantastic tour with experienced trout fishing guide Mike Tenner, testing your fly fishing skills in trying to hook some of the island's trout and salmon.
Mike has been teaching the art of fly fishing and holding trout fishing tours in Tasmania for over 30 years, so you can learn from the best, as he passes some of his lifetime experience and skills onto you.
Trout and fly fishing classes take place on the island's capital of Hobart, where beginners are also welcome to join in with the Introduction to Fly Fishing lesson.
This all-day, single fishing class begins at 09:00, with participants practicing land casting and then spending the rest of the lesson applying the techniques learnt on the water until 17:00.

Mike will also share with you the fundamentals of rods, line and reels, different parts of trout streams, reading the water (where trout is hiding), what trout eat and what fly to use, on the water strategies and much more!
A private trout fishery, set in the beautiful Huon Valley, offers prime trout fishing for beginners and those who hold some experience.
Rainbow and brown trout swim the waters, with the fish varying in size from one to over four kg!
If you've already got some fly fishing experience behind you, then you can opt for a brilliant two or three day experience with Rod and Fly Tasmania.
