IFS at the Bronte Fly Fishing School

Chris Boon talking with students of the Bronte Fly Fishing school

Yesterday IFS team members, Chris Boon and Paul Middleton, visited the Bronte Fly Fishing School at Bronte Lagoon. They spoke about a range of topics including:

  • the carp management program
  • anglers access
  • fishery performance assessments
  • fishery compliance
  • freshwater crayfish
  • whitebait
  • trout fishing in general.

The presentations were well received with some interesting questions asked by the group.

The Bronte Fly Fishing School is organised by the Devonport Fly Fishing Club.  The School is a one-week event is held every year. It has been running for 20 years and people from all around Tasmania and Australia attend. About 120 people were there, including students and instructors.

Places are limited and highly sought after. The event is very highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn the art of fly fishing.  You learn from skilled instructors in a friendly atmosphere.

Next year the school will run from 7 to 12 January.  For anyone interested more information can be found on the Devonport Fly Fishers website http://www.devonportflyfishingclub.net.au/bronte-fly-fishing-school

The event also has a Facebook page that can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Bronte-Fly-Fishing-School-700214643430269/
