"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 21/4/2012

Decided to take Bailey and his mate Nathan Vanderspeck up to Little Lake today for a final fish before the season ends next weekend.
We arrived around noon and we fished till 3.30pm. We caught 18 beaut little browns from 3/4lb up to 1.5lb,caught on softies and hardbodies.

Conditions were mainly overcast with low cloud covering the lake at times, when this happened fish seemed to go off the bite, but when things cleared the action was fast, only kept three for the boys to eat, two boats on lake as well, track very wet on the way in.
