EQUIPMENT

   Greg Beecroft specialises in FLY FISHING FOR TAILING TROUT

FLY RODS

Graphite 8’6’’ or 9’, weights at least 5 or 6 are preferred for lake fishing.

FLY LINES

Weight forward floating lines are best - a weight above the matching rod weight is suggested. Sinking and intermediate lines can be used early or late in the season.  Line cleaner is essential.

REELS

Should hold 50 metres of 20 lb backing.

LEADERS

Tapered or braided - 3x, 4x and 5x.

WADERS

Ripple soled, solid boot, neoprene chest waders are recommended. Breathable chest waders in summer are OK.

LANDING NET

We can provide you with all of the requirements for catching trout on the fly in Tasmania, including fishing licences for one day, several days or the current season. 

We also can supply tackle for lure fishing if you prefer to fish this way in appropriate waters. 

Our tackle is provided on a replace if damaged or lost basis.  The following check list for fly fishing may be useful if you prefer to bring your own equipment.

We can arrange fly fishing equipment for you by order from top brands such as Fly and Dry, Vision, Scientific Angler and Composite Development at very competitive prices.
