Some more competition fishing news, the word on the grapevine is that (unofficially) Tasmania is set to host the 2012 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships. This would be big news for Tasmania as the positive flow-on effects for Tasmanian tourism would be significant, with teams such as the UK (some of whom are quite active in the fishing media scene) set to visit for the competition. Tasmanian’s would remember when the World Championships were held in Tasmania during the late 80’s, putting the fishery on the world map for the first time. Keep an eye out for an official announcement from Fly Fish Australia over the coming months.
You heard it here first.
