Atlantic Salmon At Large

Atlantic Salmon At Large

Recently Atlantic salmon seems to be a very hot topic amongst local anglers, especially those in the south of the state in the D'Entrecasteaux area. Northern anglers should take a close look at the Tamar as there are opportunities here as well.

Mast has been busy around the boat ramps over summer as well as doing Flare & Safety nights around the state. Recently we have been to Wynyard and last night, Wednesday 26 February, we were at Montrose Bay Yacht Club where 54 turned out in better conditions than the last time we were there.
Next Wednesday night, the 5th of March, we will be at Tamar Yacht Club where we hope to see a big crowd. The best so far this summer has been 124 at Kettering Yacht Club in December. Last year MAST ran 38 flare demonstrations around the state.

Amateur fishers reminded to give dolphins a chance

Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment
Recreational fishers have been reminded to check their nets regularly for bycatch after a grisly find at Eaglehawk Neck earlier this week. A young dolphin with its tail severed and other injuries that appeared consistent with net entanglement was discovered on the Tessellated Pavement and reported to the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment.
DPIPWE wildlife biologist Rachael Alderman said fishers need to be aware of the potential for marine mammals and seabirds to become entangled in unattended nets.

Australian Fly Fishing Museum

Ever thought of giving something back to the community? Yes I am talking about volunteering.

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.
