All Round Guide

We are a dedicated personal services business that offers guided trout fishing tours in Tasmania. We cater for beginners to fly fishing all the way through to the most experienced angler new to our fishery. 

Based in Launceston Tasmania, we are blessed with some great rivers, meadow streams, mountain rivulets and creeks as well as some fantastic lakes and lagoons. And only a short drive away is our highland plateau, housing an over abundance of lakes and tarns, ripe for fishing. We are passionate about people and the environment, especially in Tasmania and our fishery.

And whilst fly fishing for trout is our passion, coaching and mentoring individuals in both a business or personal setting makes up our “bread and butter” activities. We are certified in using the principals of Neuro Linguistic Programming to help people develop in the areas of interest to them, removing road blocks to success and implementing smart goals for the future… Guiding all round!

Flying high!

After a long absence, hot air balloons are once again floating above the Tasmanian countryside – another sign that our tourism sector continues to fly high.

Central Highlands powers ahead

There is a tourism boost in the Central Highlands, with upgrades to the historic Waddamana Power Station underway. New interpretive signs at the historic site give visitors the opportunity to tour the original turbine hall, and experience Tasmania’s first large scale power scheme. This complements the Highlands Power Trail, which is a self-drive journey through the Great Lake Power Scheme that was launched in 2017. The Waddamana upgrades are expected to attract more visitors to the region, hard hit by last summer’s devastating fires. They are also a welcome tourist attraction, just months before the Highlands is thrust into the global spotlight when international anglers flock to the region in November for the World Fly Fishing Championships.

West Coast flights take-off

Regular passenger flights to Tasmania’s West Coast are set for take-off. From May 13, Par Avion will operate three return flights every week between Hobart and Strahan. The two-year trial will determine whether an ongoing passenger service is viable on this route. It is hoped the air service will help boost visitor numbers to the region, by providing an alternative to the three-hour drive between Hobart and Strahan. The West Coast has seen steady visitation growth over the last few years as the region reinvents itself from a community dependent on the mining industry to one increasingly focused on tourism. In the past three years, visitor nights at Strahan have increased by 26 per cent.

Fagus fields of gold

One of autumn’s most colourful spectacles – The Turning of the Fagus - is about to unfold in Tasmania’s national parks attracting thousands of visitors. For a short time from late April, the fagus, a small ground-hugging tree found only in Tasmania, turns incredible hues of gold, orange and red before dropping its leaves. And, there is evidence that Australia's only cold climate winter deciduous tree has been part of Tasmania’s landscape for some 40 million years. The ‘Turning of the Fagus’ is an annual pilgrimage for many, with Cradle Mountain and Mount Field the two fagus viewing hotspots. In fact, on April 27 and 28 the fagus will be celebrated at Mount Field with live music and roaming rangers on hand to educate visitors. The best spots for viewing this spectacle on foot at Mount Field is at the Tarn Shelf, and at Lake Fenton, where glacial lakes will be fringed with ‘fagus gold’, or if you prefer the comfort of your heated car, head to Lake Dobson.

Dark Mofo goes underground

As the temperature drops, the heat rises around Tasmania’s hugely popular subversive winter festival – Dark Mofo. The recently released program for the three-week June event, Dark Mofo’s seventh outing, includes an underground twist. Tunnels will add a new dimension with Dark Mofo organiser, Darklab, saying Mona would “…open the doors to a new subterranean tunnel leading to exhibition chambers…” This winter, festival goers will also get the chance to sit in a wine bar floating on the River Derwent. Associate Artistic Director Jarrod Rawlins said: “We need to create an experience of a safe but unexpected nature, something that is not designed to shock you, but is definitely designed to poke gently at your curiosity and life experiences.” All the old favourites will also be back, including the Winter Feast and Nude Solstice Swim. Dark Mofo opens on June 6.

Surfing to success

Surfing Australia’s new boss is excited about the potential of the sport in Tasmania. During his first visit to the state, new chief executive, Chris Mater, described surfing as an "exciting proposition" which is still in the "development stage" in Tasmania when compared with other states. He told The Advocate, our coastal lifestyle and "good waves" give the island state great opportunities. "In terms of increasing participation it is exciting. In terms of high performance and athlete development, Tasmania is doing well on the Australian and world stage. It has a lot of potential – and that is on top of the great events they have here … we are in the process of looking at our strategic outlook, including Tasmania." The sport will be given a major boost from its inclusion in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Tassie guide to motorcycle heaven

Tasmania’s tourism boom is still running hot, and now it is motorcycle enthusiasts who are getting a good run. A popular motorcycling guidebook has been given prominent national coverage in the popular Just Bikes magazine as it caters to a growing market segment. And, for those keen to experience the Island State on two wheels, Throw Your Leg Over Tasmania could well end up being your most valuable travelling companion. The guide is described as a ‘Lonely Planet for motorcyclists’. It highlights 16 “awesome ride routes” and comes with detailed maps and directions. There is also a comprehensive directory of places to stay or camp. The creators, Alan Cox and Bridget Hallam, were inspired after they recently headed south: “We toured Tassie in October 2017 and again in April last year to find the best riding roads – pretty easy to do in Tassie – it’s a motorcycling nirvana!”

Boost for latest Mountain bike adventure

The Wild Mersey Mountain Bike Trails is set to be completed after an $850,000 federal grant. Tasmania’s newest mountain bike drawcard will offer a network of more than 100 kilometres of track connecting the north-west towns of Sheffield, Railton and Latrobe. Much of this will be through wilderness areas offering stunning views. The mountain bike trails will cater for all levels of ability. Gentle riverside tracks will suit beginners and families, while steep rocky trails are designed for those seeking an adrenaline rush. The Wild Mersey project builds on Tasmania’s growing reputation as a world-class mountain biking destination. Stage One of the project which offers 15 kilometres of track near Latrobe, is now open. The Wild Mersey Mountain Bike Trails is expected to be a major tourist drawcard for the region, with economic modelling suggesting 138,000 new visitors will travel to the North-West each year for the experience.
