Meander River – Tasmania

Episode 3: Prospect this magnificent cool clear tailwater

The Meander River is a beautiful tailwater that runs out of Huntsman Dam, ‘meandering’ through forest and then farmland before it meets the South Esk near Launceston. It runs cold and clear all season, even through the heat of summer, and the dry fly fishing can be exceptional.

We join Brendan Turriff as he prospects his way through the fast pocket water of the upper tailwater and into the long glides of the rural meadows where sipping trout can be seen feeding on the surface of the many pools and runs of this beautiful stretch of water.
