‘Fly Cards’ and ‘Western Lakes’ release dates

With the feverish final touches being applied to our ‘Fly Cards’ fly tying booklet and ‘Western Lakes’ limited edition print, we now have details of the release dates:

Western Lakes—we expect to post these this Thursday (1 July)!

Fly Cards by Daniel Hackett – these should be in the hands of Australia Post on the 16th July. Get the vice ready!

We’ve received E-mails asking what fly patterns are going to be in Fly Cards? Without giving too much away, here’s a few of our favourite included patterns:

Possum Emerger (one of the best loch-style patterns) ♦ Shaving Brush (the best mayfly pattern ever!) ♦ WMD Hopper ♦ Fastwater Caddis ♦ Fastwater Dun (our favourite river fly) ♦ Pheasant and Peacock Nymph ♦ The Earthworm (one of the funnest fly patterns)

To pre-order a copy of Fly Cards or our large Western Lakes print, just use the Fly Shop icon to your right. Credit Card and PayPal payments are both accepted.


Thanks, Daniel and Simone.

Welcome to the new look In Season Fly Fishing shop


Over the past two months, we have been busy developing the In Season business and are excited to launch a few new products …very soon.

Fly Cards – A Series of Fly Tying Patterns by Daniel Hackett, includes recipes and instructions for 20 Australian trout flies, full colour photographs, along with fishing notes and their history. Go to the webshop for more information.

Also very exciting for the mad keen wilderness fisherman is  ‘Western Lakes’ by Cliff How, a limited edition print celebrating Australia’s greatest trout fishery. With only 100 numbered prints we recommend you pre-order for release in June. See the webshop for more details.

You’ll still find our In Season Tasmania book, tied-to-order flies, and The Source Tasmania dvd online.

Thank you for supporting us and other Aussies in small business.

Dan and Sim.
