Tiny creeks and sea run trout - Christopher Bassano

Presented from Issue 105, August 2013
Christopher Bassano fishes over 250 days a year. This interview was recorded just before he headed off to fish for Australia in the World Fly Fishing Championships in Norway 14-17 August 2013.

I live on a small stream and at the start of the season I like to go off on a bit of a discovery mission and fish the headwaters of the creeks and rivers I feel an affinity with.

These small rivers include the St Pats, Meander, Forester, Little Forester and others. The further up you go on these rivers the clearer and lower the levels. They are often less affected by the rain and runoff and you get some good opportunities. Get as close to the source as you can and you will find some good dry fly fishing. Don’t limit yourself to those I have mentioned. Most headwaters will hold trout.

Anglers Alliance Tasmania is co-ordinating a free Statewide Junior Anglers Day on Sunday 30th October 2016 , giving anglers 17 years of age and under a good chance to catch trout at a number of venues across the state stocked by the Inland Fisheries Service.

The day will be a great opportunity for children who are interested in fishing but don’t necessarily come from a fishing family, to come along and receive some guidance from experienced anglers.

Bait and some fishing gear will be provided along with giveaways and soft drinks. All parents need to do is to bring the kids along on Sunday 30th October between 10am and 3pm to one of the following venues :
