Fly fishing Tasmania – Autumn dry fly fishing

Lower Mac trout

The start of the autumn rains has brought great fishing to our rivers. Ants are falling on the northern rivers, and solid numbers of baetid mayfly are emerging after lunch, after mornings with unbelievably huge caenid hatches (just check out our Facebook page for images of one of these hatches). Western Lakes fish have been tailing well, and also feeding on flying ant falls, whilst lower down on the Bradys Chain and surrounds we’ve found lots of midges, gum beetles and brown jassids. That’s why autumn is a great season to fly fish in Tasmania.
