The Guiding Day

Our guiding day normally begins at 9.00 am, when your guide will meet you at Rainbow Lodge or your alternative accommodation.

While being guided, we provide all tackle (this includes a range of top-quality Sage fly rods, Scientific Angler fly lines and Ross fly reels), flies, leaders, waders and other bits and pieces needed for the day, as well as morning tea, lunch and nibbles. All drinks are provided, including hot beverages and a range of soft drinks or bottled water.

We are also able to provide wet weather clothing and warm coats, hats and gloves if the weather turns inclement.

For those fishing from boats our customised vessels will provide a safe, stable and comfortable platform from which to fish.

We will return you to Rainbow Lodge or your accommodation when the fish stop biting or at a time you request, however we will usually have you back by 7.00 pm. Early starts or late finishes are possible when conditions are favourable, or if you prefer them, but as the best fishing is mainly between 11 am and 6 pm, it’s often best to have a relaxed start to the day.

When out on the water, we urge you to ask ALL questions you may have – be they big or small. Our aim is for you to learn as many tips, tricks and techniques as possible, so that you can repeat the experience when fishing on your own.

“I have enjoyed several trips now and regard Tasmania as the best stillwater flyfishing venue in the world.” 

- John Horsey, Trout Fisherman Magazine.
