Welcome to Rainbow Lodge

There is no better place on earth to catch wild brown trout or spectacular rainbow trout than in Tasmania and Rainbow Lodge is the perfect base.

Guided fly fishing trips on Tasmania’s pristine lakes and rivers are our specialty. Whether polaroiding the shallow western lakes, sight casting to mayfly feeders, tailing trout or midging fish, the Rainbow Lodge guides will provide you with an unforgettable and unique experience.

We are fortunate to have assembled what we believe is Australia's best team of trout fishing guides. They are all world class with international fly fishing experience and acclaim while our head guide, Christopher Bassano is in his twenty third season of guided fly fishing in Tasmania and is the host of the best selling Highland Gold DVDs -Tasmanian Fly Fishing Techniques - Volumes 1 and 2.

At the end of your guided day you can relax in the comfort of Rainbow Lodge and maybe even tie up a few flies at the fly tying bench.

At Rainbow Lodge Tasmania we also provide a range of other fly fishing related experiences and services. These include:

"Worldwide, a handful of guides have a knowledge of their fishery - and how to fish it - that truly seems to draw on a sixth sense. Christopher Bassano is one of these few."
