Fly Fishing Tasmania tours to our best trout waters


Steves brown trout - dry fly fishing.


Bob McKinley of Fish Wild Tasmania a Hobart based professional trout guide offers one day tours to all Tasmanian trout waters.  NOTE - I also meet anglers in the Highlands if you are booked to stay up there.
An early start from your Hobart accommodation, the airport or we can meet up in the Highlands.
Travel to the Tasmanian highlands is around 1.5 hours through rich heritage countryside and provincial towns.
Our fly fishing tours are all inclusive and provide everything you will need from fly fishing tuition if you need it to customised boat, all fly and lure gear, morning tea, lunch, waders and wet weather clothing.


We recommend you consider doing 2 or 3 days to maximize the experience and cover a variety of waters as well as allowing for a poor weather day. Extending your tour is the best way to experience trout fishing Tasmania as we have a vast range of waters and options. When we stay overnight in the Highlands we might try for an early morning fish then back for a late breakfast if the weather is good for that, then out again for the rest of the day. This extends the experience to other styles and offers anglers the chance to try more of our unique fly fishing techniques. Fly fishing tuition is also available on all tours.


Accommodation is an extra if you decide to stay overnight in the Highlands and I recommend the following:
Central Highland Lodge at Miena on the shores of Great Lake.  
This is the best mid range accommodation available in the Highlands and the rates are very reasonable.
They have a great lounge, bar and bistro at the lodge for all guests.

I enjoyed it immensely

Hi Bob
Thanks for the two days of fishing. I enjoyed it immensely and apart from continuously distracting me from fishing with coffee biscuits and delicious spicy salami your attention and service was top class. The seven (and a half team) big trout per day were also really good.
