Fishing Highlights, August to September Daniel Hackett

The majority of Tasmanian fishers think of themselves as a relatively tough bunch, "any harder they'd rust', battling relentless snow, rain and sun (somebody has to do it). Despite the obvious ruggedness of the fishers in question, the battle hardened Taswegian trouter is more likely to be found tucked up in bed eating Nan's chicken soup during August and September rather then on the water. This is a pity because any time is a good time to go fishing, and August and September are no exceptions. Pack away your blouses, pull on a beanie and try a few of these highlights!

When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing - tasfish.com

Info on TFBN. subscriptions etc

Many lakes have been spilling and who would have ever thought that going back into last Autumn.
It was normal in the past to plan on a trip to the Macquarie River in early October for the Red Spinner hatch. Not this year.

A Call for articles - Just a reminder

Tasfish is looking for article contributions.
Currently there are over 2000 article - from "I caught a fish today" ... to essay length documentation of multi day sagas!

So, it's still summer, the fish are biting (we hope!) and what better thing to do help our fishing community than to send Mike an email telling him about your big adventure.

Please include a picture. It may take 24 hours for the article to publish. Or maybe 5 minutes! It depends on how busy you make me. Accept that as a challenge.

Seriously, in restoring the web site, I noticed a great history of past articles. Fishing stories as far as the eye can see. Contributions have "dried up" in recent years. Currently there are 396 articles about Lakes http://www.tasfish.com/articles but IFS, DPIPWE, MAST and Peak Bodies is catching up! We mustn't let the bureaucrats win ....

So, get fishing ... then get writing and send them in to Mike.

Cheers,

Scallop Season Opens
The 2014 recreational scallop season opens from this Saturday, 12 April and runs until July 31.  The D'Entrecasteaux Channel remains closed to protect scallop stocks, so you cannot take or possess scallops in this area or transit through it with scallops on board your boat.  Reports last year indicated that scallop divers were most active on the East Coast from Coles Bay to Marion Bay.
