Rainy days and dry flies – Tasmanian fly fishing

We are lucky to have had plenty of rain in Tassie, and plenty of high rivers currently (summer should be great!). The wetter days have seen lots of tannin in many of the streams, but this has brought on the best dry fly fishing of the season. With a hint of blood-red tannin, the trout have been rising confidently to large dries (such as our Bruisers Bugs), as well as the usual favourites of Glister Tags, 1864 Scruffys and Fastwater Duns. We’ve had plenty of tricky days with the weather (two tornadoes were seen outside of Launceston today), but we’ve also had plenty of days with 30+ dry fly takes. Get amongst it!
