As Tasmania’s only fly fishing outfitter, RiverFly 1864 offers a diverse range of options for beginners to advanced anglers, and can get you to those lesser-known waters with the largest private access across Tasmania. Riverfly’s local Tasmanian guides are some of the finest in the country, with decades of experience across the diverse wild trout fishery.
RiverFly Wilderness Huts are in a wild and picturesque region known as Skullbone Plains, within the famed Western Lakes. They are the only privately-owned huts located in this sight-fishing mecca, giving anglers exclusive fishing to these remote waters. Guests contribute to the conservation of this area with a portion of every trip fee going to the Tasmanian Land Conservancy.
Sight-fishing to wild brown trout across rivers, lakes and tarns using mostly dry flies is a specialty at RiverFly, and educating guests is all part of the experience. They offer gear and advice at their speciality retail fly shop in Launceston city, and are known globally for their handcrafted premium flies.
