It's all about Trout!

Fly fishing for trout in northern Tasmania

Since the first recorded catch of a trout on fly in 1876, Tasmania has offered the angler a world class fly fishing experience, with some of Tasmania’s best fishing in the rivers, lakes, streams and tarns within cooee of Longford.  

From the Racecourse Inn fisherfolk have easy access to the South Esk and Macquarie Rivers,  Brumby’s Creek, Four Springs Lagoon at Selbourne, and the lakes of the Central Highlands, nestled in the magnificent Great Western Tiers.

Brumby’s Creek near Cressy is home to the annual Trout Expo, and Clarendon House, at Nile, south of Evandale, houses the Australian Fly Fishing Museum.

We can  put you in touch with local fly fishing guides  who will tailor a fishing adventure based on your level of experience.    At the end of the day relax after a hot shower with a cosy drink by the fire at The Racecourse Inn.
