Tasmania, Australia Fly Fishing

Happy Australia Day to all my Catch Magazine YouTube subscribers!

Here is the full version of the Tasmania film I created which was featured in the February 2017 edition of Catch Magazine. For this project I filmed on the Twigwaters and high plateau lakes of the amazing Australian island of Tasmania. Flown Under Down Under by Tourism Australia, I met up with Daniel and Simone Hackett of RiverFly 1864. RiverFly 1864 recently won the 2017 Gold Medal from the Australian Tourism Awards. I filmed Simone and Daniel stalking small creeks, or Twigwaters, of the north-east streams in search of small, gorgeous brown trout who live in a playground environment.

In the second segment of the tour, Daniel and I hiked into the Northern Lakes region inside the Tasmanian World Heritage Area near the Walls of Jerusalem National Park. Our basecamp was private RiverFly 1864 huts. I was able to capture some truly interesting animals on film, including the spiny little echidna, the famous jack jumper ants, wallabies and the venomous copperhead and tiger snakes. Tasmania is a magical place, and for a camera operator it's an exciting landscape to film and a place I’d like to return to with my family someday.

Special thanks to Eddie Bauer & Bauer Fly Reels for promoting Catch Magazine. Also many thanks to Tourism Australia, Daniel and Simone Hackett of RiverFly 1864 and Karen and Josh De Groot for their generous hospitality and new friendship. Finally, I'd like to recognize and appreciate Trevor Green Music accompanying this video, which include guitar, didgeridoo and percussion instruments in songs from 'Sacred Seed' and his newest album 'Voice of the Wind.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
