"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.

Little Lake Report 21/10/2011

Trev didn't want to go to school today (lol), so Mike Stevens and myself decided to take him to Little Lake to see if we could help him catch is first fish on a fly. Well, he achieved that before we even wet our lines and were standing around having a prefish coffee!

To top it off he landed another 4 before the day was out.
All up between us we caught 17 for the day only bringing three home and releasing the rest.

A word of warning, snakes are about everywhere seemingly after the frogs that abound around the lakes shoreline, also you have to walk in from Gunns Lake, as the track is just a pile of mud and you will get bogged if you try to take a vehicle in, our suggestion is to do the 15 minute walk in.
