World Record SBT

A personal request to you.

On 26 October we are taking part in the ABC Tasmania Giving Tree Garage Sale in Hobart. We are trying to gather fishing gear to sell - with all money raised going to the Giving Tree Charity. This is Tasmania's biggest Christmas Charity.
We will be on air from 6.40am that morning.
If you have any tackle you can spare please email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) me.
Any tackle that is left over will be packaged up as gifts for the Giving Tree.
This is your chance to help a Charity - and get some kids into fishing that may not otherwise have a chance.

Everyone has something they can spare - so please help.

Longford Fishing Club Kids Dam 14/9/2013

Sponsored by fishingboatingtasmania.com.au and Petuna Aquaculture
The weather was perfect and with the dam receiving a fresh stocking of 3kg Atlantics a few days before, there was much interest in our first kids dam outing. Almost 30 children fished at various times throughout the day, with the 9am start having 25 children and their families lining the shore. It made for quite a spectacle with the Mums, Dads & Kids rushing to get the lines in when the call was made to start fishing and it wasn't long until the fish were hitting the bank. Big smiles on the kids" faces is what it's all about.

RISE - Fly Fishing Film Festival 2013

Not Long Now. - In its 8th year, RISE is on a quest to explore the diverse world of fly fishing, to connect anglers through shared experience, and to create public awareness of fly fishing's new vibrant emergence. The festival allows the fishing community to share their passion for the sport by attending film screenings across the country. It's the biggest kick-off to the fishing season there is!

World Fly Fishing Championships, Norway 2013 Summary

It is disappointing to travel this far and get such poor fishing. For the Aussies, the planning starts more than 18 months before the event and you can’t help but feel a little deflated once everything is over. A ninth place finish was not what we had hoped for and although a ‘podium’ finish might seem a long way off, it is certainly achievable. There were many lessons learned from this year’s event.

New Reports by Christopher Bassano from the World Fly Fishing Championships

Please find eleven reports from Christopher Bassano.
First Report
I thought I would send you all a quick email from Europe as I had promised I would. As you will know, the team arrived in Norway this morning for two weeks of practice before the official competition week.Unfortunately, I have been unable to join them in Mosjoen as I have been unwell and in hospital since Saturday. It turned out that I had a bad case of gastro and my antibiotics seem to be doing the job. As I am currently in Wales, I will join the team in the evening of the 4th of August.
