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.

Little Pine Lagoon Car Park Improvements

As part of ongoing investment in infrastructure at popular waters IFS has recently upgraded the car park at the Little Pine Lagoon dam wall.
Little Pine Lagoon is arguably Tasmania’s premier fly fishing water and is currently the 5th most popular lake fishery in the state based on angler numbers and effort. The parking area is well patronised by anglers fishing the Untouchables Shore and Western Shores of the lagoon.
The car park and access tracks were severely rutted and uneven with large rocks protruding in many locations.
The access road and car park area have been graded and top dressed with road base material and will provide a greatly improved all weather facility for anglers.
