Tasmanian Da PICTORIAL | PART ONE New Zealand is known world-wide for its spectacular brown trout fishing. Tasmania, which is located a little to the West - just South of Australia, has much the same potential for producing massive brown trout in pristine rivers and lakes - but it is quite unexplored and under-exposed compared to New Zealand. Accompanied by a couple of friends, I recently set out to charter the Tasmanian outback in search for trout. We had no idea what to expect, but we had our camping gear, supplies, camera equipment and fly fishing rods with us - in addition to lots of adventurous drive. It turned out to be more than enough for a great fly fishing adventure! The trout were there, they were hungry, and most of them had never seen an artificial fly before.
