by Sarah Graham

Many anglers are preparing for the opening of the new angling season on Saturday 7 August and it's shaping up to be another good one with the fishery in excellent health as a result of last year’s drought breaking rains. There are many great fishing locations around the State from which to choose for the opening weekend and early season fishing but here are a few suggestions.

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 -

Hello everyone, I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself.

My name is Stephen Smith and I have been managing the website since May 2009.

It has been an epic journey of learning and discovery and I am indebted to Mike Stevens for his help, support and patience.

I am developing a new venture Rubicon Web and Technology Training ( ). The focus is two part, to develop websites for individuals and small business and to train people to effectively use technology in their everyday lives.

Please contact me for further information.

Australian Fly Fishing Museum

Ever thought of giving something back to the community? Yes I am talking about volunteering.
The Australian Fly Fishing Museum needs volunteers for the Clarendon site - just out of Evandale in Northern Tasmania.
It is a pretty easy job and a knowledge of fishing or fly fishing is not a requirement. Training is provided. If you do have an interest in fly fishing all the better.
The guide introduces visitors to exhibits on display and the story behind fly fishing in Australia. What is important is enthusiasm, ability to maintain simple records, ability to work unsupervised and an ability to effectively communicate with individuals, couples and groups.
Situated in a refurbished cottage at Clarendon the Australian Fly Fishing Museum is a beautiful space to spend a leisurely day. Bring a good book, surf the internet or tie some flies if that is your interest.
There are kitchen and bathroom facilities, plus a computer, internet, fly tying gear and more.
Bring a mate if you want or come on your own.
If you can do a day - or even two a month that would be fantastic. 
We have some special offers and rewards for volunteers as well.
The Museum is open Sept-June.10-4 Mon-Sat and Sunday noon to 4.
