2013-14  TROUT  SEASON   REPORT by Adrian Webb

  Well the 2013-14 season is now over and a new one will be back soon enough, but I don't mind the three month break as it will give me time to get the body right for the 2014-15 season. I may make a couple trips to Loongana and give the Leven River a spin session as it is still open above the Loongana Bridge up until midnight 1st June 2014. We'll just wait and see for now.

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.

The Devonport Fly Fishing Club (Inc) will be holding their annual fly-fishing school at Bronte Lagoon in the Central Highlands from the 8th to the 13th January 2012.
This long running school has helped in excess of 1000 students over the years and is a great opportunity for beginners, or those with some experience, to learn and improve their fly-fishing.
Students are well supported with the club providing practical lessons and experienced instructors to help fast track their development. What could take someone years of practice and frustration by themselves can be learnt in this one week.
At a cost of $120 per student for the 5-day course it is well within the reach of everyone, with many students choosing to turn it into a family holiday. The club actively promotes women anglers attending the course and also junior anglers provided they are under adult supervision.
Students who undertake the course will be required to supply all their own angling gear and if choosing to camp on site will need to be self-sufficient. The club provides camping area, large marquees, fresh water and portable toilets. Showers and food are available at the nearby Bronte Park Highland Village.
Some of the topics covered by the course include Safety, Casting, Fishing Techniques, Knots and Leaders, Gear set up, Entomology, Reading Lakes, and Streams, and Fly Patterns. The learning atmosphere is relaxed and informal providing ample time for socialising and fishing also.
As usual the school will again cater for those people returning as second year students with a separate program that will enable them to take that next step and follow on from the previous years learning. More details available at
