New Tasmanian fly fishing dvd – ‘The Window’
Trolling the net today, I found this new fly fishing teaser from Bombproof Media: The Window – Chasing Australia’s Southernmost Trout.
Without knowing a lot about the theme or quality of the project, the DVD looks set to revolve around the sea-trout of New River Lagoon, South West Tasmania. For those who don’t know, the run of sea-trout in New River Lagoon was made famous by a Greg French/FlyLife article almost a decade ago, but the 14-hour hike to get there has kept this run of fish unattainable and all but a dream to most.
On the sea-runner front this season, reports of sea-trout from the West Coast rivers have been dissapointing this season. The North West by contrast has featured some good runs, particularily in the Mersey with fish to 8lbs landed, while the smaller North East estuaries have featured the best runs in a couple years. All in all though, the Derwent Estuary stands at the top of the pile, with sea-run and resident ‘slob’ fish up to 10lbs being caught and released last week.
That’s all for now, and remember, you heard it here first! Enjoy the teaser
