2012 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships to be held in Tasmania

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.

    Hi Philip,

    I just wanted to confirm that the 2012 Commonwealths will be hosted by Fly Fish Australia in Tasmania in 2012. Planning is well under way and all the details are available on the web site http://www.flyfishaustralia.com.au or through our mirrored site http://www.2012commonwealths.com.au. We are also hosting the 2011oceanias in NSW in the previous year. Its mirrored site access details are 2011oceanisa.com.au

    Both competitions will be great for tourism, fly fishing generally and of course will showcase our wonderful fisheries and sponsors.

    I hope you will put links to all three web sites on your web site.
