The biggest fly fishing gathering ever – the Tasmanian Fly Fishing Expo is being held at Clarendon – a grand property owned by the National Trust (Tas) on the South Esk River.
Several international guests will share their vast knowledge – as will some of the Worlds best casters, a former World Champion, National Champion and more.
There will be many rods and lines to cast, casting games to play, gear to be won and demonstrations to see. Whilst there is a small entry fee ($10) – which will be donated to the Australian Fly Fishing Museum, most activities are free*.
Book and pay online and go in the draw to win a Sage Flyrod, reel and line combo.
Tickets will also be available at the gate.
Clarendon also houses the Australian Fly Fishing Museum, which will be open with new displays. http://www.affm.net.au/
The Expo will utilize Clarendon and the grounds for a variety of activities, including forums, demonstrations, fly tying, casting and gear demonstrations.
For coffee addicts – do not worry. We have engaged UP YORK – a local coffee shop to bring their skills, crema and machine to Clarendon. This is the best coffee in Launceston.
Food: The Lions Club City of Launceston will keep you fed, and will have plenty of soft drink and water etc.
*Drinks in the Garden: Flylife is hosting. Enjoy Drinks in the Garden on Saturday evening with the presenters and many other renowned fly fishers. It is a chance to talk, mingle and relax after a hard day. There is a small charge for drinks and this will go to the Fish Habitat Improvement Fund.
