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.

IMAS are looking for keen fishers to participate in their research angler logbook program. The logbook collects information on recreational catch including species caught, fish size and how many fish are kept or released. If you're interested please email Sean Tracey at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The logbook information provides important size and weight data that feeds into the Survey of Tasmanian Recreational Fishers to provide total catch estimates by weight.
