"Angling is an art - Hannah Ledger

and an art worth your learning.."

Presented from Issue 112, October 2014
So said Izaak Walton in the 1600s. It seems that Burnie’s Hannah Ledger has combined angling with art rather well. Hannah is a fish fanatic, outdoor enthusiast and budding, self-taught artist. From as young as she can remember, she has always had crayon in hand, colouring book under arm and as she’s grown as a painter, jars full of paintbrushes and cupboards full of ready-to-go blank canvas’.

A country girl at heart, Hannah was schooled at Yolla District High School, a small ‘farm’ school in the states North West, then went on to Hellyer College where she was given the opportunity to really grow her art skills; And by grow, that meant skipping the classes that would probably have more an impact of getting her somewhere in life, like English and Math to spend every spare minute with the art teacher, painting or drawing.

As typical teenagers do, they make poor decisions- and after being accepted in to one of the countries top art schools, turned down the offer and decided to move to the big island, where she lived for 5 years working in what seemed ‘dead end’ retail.

Lake Leake 24/8/2013

I decided to have a look at Lake Leake today with the Mad Hungarian George Papp. We arrived around 11am to a full lake, headed up towards the snowy and started drifting across the bay in 1.5mts of water. We were casting Dales Yep lures about as well as the gold and black t.tails.
We mainly stuck to fishing this area and caught the majority of fish here.

We ended up catching our bags limits of browns and rainbows, with sizes of 2lb to 3.5lb mark and all in top condition.
The browns were beautiful colour inside but the rainbows not as red The fish had been feeding on stick caddis and smut. We lost a few others. Water temp was 6.8 degrees with the fish being fairly active today, We got back to the ramp around 4.30pm.

What a top session we had, George gave the wet fly ago off the shore for an hour with no luck, lures doing the damage today.
Fish caught on Yep KW Galaxia,Red Nut & the T.Tails.
