Your Tasmanian Fly Fishing Adventure
Enjoy some of the best wilderness fly fishing that Tasmania has to offer.
RiverFly 1864 guides keep you safe, guide you to the best spots, and help you select the best flies to tempt the most discerning trout. Single-day or multiple-day guided fishing bookings and beginner or advanced anglers catered for.
RiverFly 1864 is the leading river and wilderness tour operator. Our guides will lead you onto wild brown and rainbow trout among the famous Tasmanian midland streams, or along more remote rainforest rivers. Venues include Brumbys Creek, the South Esk and North Esk rivers, St Patricks River, Meander and Mersey rivers.
Get yourself to Launceston (direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) and start your fly fishing adventure.
