Discover Flinders Island

Paradise Right at Our Door. Anglers Heaven.

In January this year a friend and I decided to head over to Flinders Island and investigate the rumours we had heard about fish that literally queued up to take a lure or bait - all sounded a bit fanciful to me - but then, what if it was true?By the time all our rods were loaded aboard the Air Charter flight from Bridport to Flinders Island, the plane closely resembled an aerial porcupine and it was a credit to the pilot that he was even able to get the plane off the ground let alone make to the Island - you can never have enough rods really, can you?Accommodation is plentiful on Flinders with something to suit every taste and budget, from camping on Crown land with no facilities at all, right through to renting a holiday home or the affordable luxury of one of Partridge Farm's "bush retreats" with its panoramic views over Franklin Sound, we opted for something in the middle and stayed in one of the units at the Furneax Tavern in the small township of Lady Baron.

Hello everyone, I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself.

Tamar River Report 6/1/2013

Well, I am quick to post success up in my reports, ....but you don't often hear so much of the failures (of which there are a few don't worry!) Given the calm weather this weekend, we decided to get our boat, aptly named "The Olympic torch"  (because it never goes out),.. out of the shed. Our hope was to get the kids onto a few flathead.

We were originally going to go to Swansea but given the fires, we thought it best to keep out of the authorities way and also partly out of respect for those affected. Saturday was spent ski biscuiting on the Tamar, whilst today was spent chasing a few flathead around the Bell Buoy Beach area.
Jacob drove us out and we started off catching a couple of quality fish, not long after it all went quiet, ...perhaps it was the pirates that caused the problem (see photo.)
Not even enough to feed the family....Gee we struggle on the Tamar river.
My two girls couldn't make today's trip as they had to work, but on the plus side, It was great to catch up with President Jim and Virginia McKenna.
Back to work tomorrow, bugger.
Regards - Todd
