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.

Members of the Fly Fishers Club of Tasmania celebrated the opening of the Club's new lodge "Noonamena" at Little Pine Lagoon on Sunday 17th October 2010.

The Director of Inland Fisheries, John Diggle was on hand to present two framed prints marking the occasion to President Terry Horan in front of approximately 50 members and supporters who braved the snow showers to attend.

The opening was the culmination of a major commitment by club members who contributed time and effort to building the new lodge supported with a grant from the Department of Sport and Recreation. The new lodge replaced the old "Noonamena" and will serve members and their guests for many years to come.
