The bid voted on by the world members of FIPS Mouche in Setubal Portugal on April 15th was unanimously supported by some 30 member countries.
Tasmania will be the host state for the event which is planned for November of 2019 and to be based at the Country Club Tasmania in Launceston.

1000s of fish died in this famous black bream river last winter. Water testing detected low oxygen levels, probably due to exceptional natural conditions.

SCIENTIFIC ANGLER's VISIT TASMANIA

scientific-anglers2015

 Fresh from the USA, Scientific Angler's fly line gurus Jeff Pierce and Andrew Bosway will be talking at Clarendon on the South Esk River this Saturday August 01 at 10am. These guy's are the brain's behind Scientific Angler's and they geek-out on fly lines that result in more fish. Understandably they live and breath their work and passion for flyfishing. Scientific Angler's have long been the leaders in fly line innovation. In more recent years they have created a stir with their revolutionary Textured and Sharkskin coated fly lines. Tapers, coatings, sink rates, grain weights - it can all get confusing. Much of the marketing material for today's fly lines focuses on the technological mumbo jumbo without really delving into how the right fly line can help you're success on the water. Jeff and Andrew will bash down those barriers and tell you in real fishing terms how a particular line will (or won't!) result in more fish in the net. This is a presentation not to be missed and there will be prizes during the day! We hope you can make it.

At Clarendon - through Evandale. (see map below)

Bosnia 2015 Final Report

It has been a week now since the end of the world championships in Bosnia and Herzegovina. To say that the entire Australian team is disappointed with the end result would be an understatement. There was not a lot of conversation in the mini van on the way to Zagreb as we were all pondering what went wrong. I have a few thoughts that I will share with you now.

Bosnia Report 7

Gutted! What a day we have had. The competition is over and the results are in. Spain has won the gold, USA the silver and Bosnia the Broze. I can't remember the last time the Czechs, French and Italians all missed out on a medal. It tells you something about the draw and the fishing. That is not to take anything away from those who did well, but you can't catch what is not in front of you.
Individually, a Polish competitor has won, someone from Montenegro was second and USA third. Again, none of the favoured countries in the top three. Amazing.
Enough about them and more about us!

Bosnia Report 6

Written prior to official results being released

Today was the middle day of competition and only one session was held. Tomorrow we have two sessions to finish the competition.
Luke fished the lake and as always, there were very few fish caught. Those that were landed were on differing techniques and lines. Unfortunately, Luke did not manage a fish. He is someone who I regard as possibly our best lake angler. That means we have blanked all thee of the lake sessions so far. Mick is fishing it first thing in the morning and then I have the privilege of trying to catch one out of it in the last session. Luke's boat partner did not even see a fish either.
Mick drew the lowest beat in the Verbas River. That means it is by far the worst beat in the river and he did not see a fish at stage throughout his session. I don't think a fish has come off this beat during the entire comp to date. Although he goes to the lake in the morning, he will then get to finish on the highest producing river of the comp, the Sanica.
