Recently Atlantic salmon seems to be a very hot topic amongst local anglers, especially those in the south of the state in the D'Entrecasteaux area. Northern anglers should take a close look at the Tamar as there are opportunities here as well.
The recent "great escape" has provided a perfect opportunity for fresh and saltwater anglers alike to experience some truly memorable sport. Tasmania's pristine, clean and cool waters are the perfect nursery for the Atlantic Salmon and as our local fish farms produce more and more fresh quality seafood it is a fact that there are going to be tangible consequences.
Honda Australia is celebrating its 50th Anniversary during 2014, and as a result the company is giving away up to $2,500 ‘Honda Dollars’ with the purchase of selected Honda outboards during the months of May & June. Honda has never offered savings like this, and Honda Marine national manager, Chris New, sees it as the perfect head-start Australian boaters want as they approach Boat Show season.
2014 is a milestone year for Honda, with the company celebrating the 50th anniversary of the very first Honda four-stroke outboard engine, the GB30. A modest 4hp engine, it represented the noble ambitions of Honda’s founder, Soichiro Honda, to manufacture only four-stroke engines for the benefit of the environment and generations to come.
Honda has unveiled its much-anticipated BF80 and BF100 outboard engines, further reinforcing the brand as a leader in the four-stroke market. The release coincides with Honda Marine’s 50-year anniversary, which is being celebrated throughout 2014. The new 80 and 100hp outboards provide new levels of performance in their sectors by using Honda’s world-renowned technologies such as BLAST™ and VTEC (BF100 only), all the while ensuring excellent fuel economy.
