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.

BREAM WANTED

 


 Researchers at the AMC are investigating the influence of environmental later conditions on bream growth and survival. As a recreational fisher we would like you to participate as a recreational research angler.  Next time you go fishing for bream and keep a few, place your frames in a plastic bag with a label stating the date, capture estuary, your name and contact details. 


You can freeze these frames and drop them off at participating tackle shops. We will use these frames to determine the age of the fish and determine its annual growth rates. Prizes will be awarded for the donation of bream frames. Prizes will be awarded based on the oldest fish donated, the total accumulated age of fish donated and a random raffle of all participating fishers.  Participating fishers will also be eligible to receive an annual subscription to Tasmanian Fishing and Boating News
If your interested in participating and want more information talk to the staff in this tackle shop or
Call Dr James Haddy on 0439 032 935 or 6324 3828.
