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

My name is Stephen Smith and I have been managing the website tasfish.com since May 2009.

It has been an epic journey of learning and discovery and I am indebted to Mike Stevens for his help, support and patience.

I am developing a new venture Rubicon Web and Technology Training ( www.rwtt.com.au ). The focus is two part, to develop websites for individuals and small business and to train people to effectively use technology in their everyday lives.

Please contact me for further information.

OUT NOW! New Fishing Tasmania Annual Magazine

Fishing Tasmania is the ultimate Tasmanian fishing guide! It is a quality magazine that comes wrapped with a FREE informative DVD titled "How to catch Bream on lures', plus a FREE Fishing Tasmania sticker.
It retails for $10.95 and is available in newsagents throughout Australia and selected fishing tackle stores in Tasmania.
The purpose of the magazine is to attract increased participation in fishing in Tasmania for the future sustainability of the fishery. Fisheries management is funded primarily through angling license sales, so the more people that buy licenses and fishing gear, the better it is for all. We encourage you to seek out a copy of Fishing Tasmania Annual and show your support by displaying the free sticker on your car or boat.


The Devonport Fly Fishing Club (Inc) will be holding their annual fly-fishing school at Bronte Lagoon in the Central Highlands from the 8th to the 13th January 2012.
This long running school has helped in excess of 1000 students over the years and is a great opportunity for beginners, or those with some experience, to learn and improve their fly-fishing.
