Late summer brings to the fore the best of fly fishing in Tasmania, the regularity of hatches and falls of terrestrial insects makes dry fly fishing at times spectacular. These days are highlights and can be predicted with some regularity, however along with the highs you also get the lows, those ‘dog days’ where the trout simply don’t want to play. It could be they are too well fed or more sensitive to changes in the weather, or in fact simply will not feed until the hatch they can predict better than us arrives.

How to predict where the fishing will be good is a key to success at this time of year particularly if you want the fish a particular style of fly fishing. When fish do start to feed make the most of the opportunities as in high summer with warm water these ‘hot bites’ may well only last a short time.

platinum-braidPlatypus Platinum “Plus”; Quality Australian made braid thinner and stronger

After two years feedback and continuous research, Platypus has remastered their popular Platinum Braid, to produce a stronger thinner Braid whilst still retaining the softness of the original best-selling line. By employing a unique braiding process we are able to pack the PE fibres+ closer together decreasing diameter and enhancing the strength by up to 25%. When consulting with anglers one of the most important properties is softness, this increases handleability of the braid enabling smoother, more trouble-free casts.

Barnacle encrusted Mercury Outboard starts

A barnacle encrusted Mercury outboard recovered some 200 nautical miles off Dampier in Western Australia, started after spending months underwater. Marine Engineer Matt Giles was working on the Offshore Support Vessel “Far Shogun” when an upturned tinnie was spotted in the water. “It was a 3.2m Stacer and going by the barnacles and other marine growth on the hull it looked as if it (and the engine) had been underwater for a few months at least,” he said.

This 132 page glossy publication is a comprehensive guide to buying a new boat and setting it up for fishing.

SHIMANO SAROS FA SPIN REEL

The existing Shimano Saros threadline series has been re-built from the ground up, with a stylish new appearance and a heap of extra features.

Looking especially smart in a gunsmoke grey, black and metallic finish, the FA series covers all the popular small to medium reel sizes — 1000, 2500, 3000 and 4000. The new XGT7 graphite frame, rotor and sideplate cuts down weight while maintaining strength, and we have X-Ship for increased gearing efficiency and power, delivered via a zinc DC gear and a hardened brass pinion for longevity and light-touch handle rotation.
