Wild brown trout on the mayfly

Autumn hatches are on – fly fishing Tasmania

The Tasmanian autumn hatches have begun! We’ve had some ripper fishing during the past three weeks, everything from hoppers, aphids, ants, baetid and caenid mayflies. It’s been important to keep moving and to find pods of action.

Dry flies such as our Mini WMD Hoppers, #16 Fastwater Duns, Bruisers Bugs and F-Flies have all been successful. Meander, Mersey, Esk, 19 Lagoons, Great Lake (isopod feeders on the mud flats) and parts of Arthurs have all been great.

The image was taken by RiverFly 1864 guide Peter Broomhall last week, a wild brown trout homing-in on a caenid mayfly.
