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.

Rock Lobster Opening Dates 2013

Hi Mike
We are getting quite a few enquiries about the various rock lobster season opening dates and whether fishers can transit between open and closed areas.  I’ve attached a flyer here. The information is also on the DPIPWE website at:

We thought it may come up on your radio spot this Saturday which is the date the first area, the Western Region, opens.  Please contact Rod if you need further information.

Thanks
