It's all happening in the highlands

Peter Hayes
March and April are among my favourite months for fishing in Tasmania's Central Highlands.

The weather is generally at its most stable in these months and breathlessly still, bright, sunny day are not uncommon.   I remember being at Great Lake one day in a spot I call Proposal Point and looked in awe of the stillness of this wonderful environment.

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 -

Australian Fly Fishing Museum Now Open

Here is an update.
We held the opening dinner Friday 3 May and it was a huge success.
Rex hunt emceed the night and Tamie Fraser was the guest speaker. We reckon Tamie told the best joke - sorry Rex. A Nick Taransky rod was auctioned for $7250 - perhaps a record for an Australian bamboo rod. It was donated by Nick and had a lovely Ross reel attached and that was donated by Andrew Braithwaite.

One of the things we need are volunteers though. We have something to entice you to be one of the first.
Volunteer and WIN
Be one of the first twenty volunteers and we will give you a one year membership to the museum and you will go in the draw to win $500 of fly fishing tackle. You need to be able to volunteer 1-2 days a month 10am to 4pm - excluding July/August when we are closed.
