Welcome to the land of plenty – with its extensive and diverse waterways, pristine rivers and streams, clear mountain lakes, brown trout and rainbows, brook trout and sea run trout, its plentiful and diverse insect life – the perfect venue for your next fly fishing journey.
Nestled in the Meander Valley at the gateway to the World Heritage listed Tasmanian Wilderness, Driftwater is perfectly positioned as a base for accessing this magnificent fishery.
We will design a fly fishing journey to suit your requirements and experience. Whether wading the lowland rivers, polaroiding the highland lakes, targeting mayfly feeders or early morning tailing trout or drifting in our handcrafted wooden driftboats, casting bamboo – your journey will be a unique and unforgettable one.
Catering for the beginning angler or the more advanced and offering tuition if required.
A full range of fishing equipment is available for your use, including waders, boots, rods, reels and a variety of bamboo flyrods.
We would like to encourage more women to explore the joys of flyfishing and therefore offer a female friendly environment and female guide.
Catering for individuals and small groups, from one day to a week, guided fishing only or fishing and accommodation packages – we can accommodate your requirements and those of non fishing partners.
