    Each year the Devonport Fly Fishing Club holds a Fly Fishing School/Camp at Hut Bay, Bronte Lagoon, aimed at teaching the art of fly fishing to beginners. In addition an intermediate course is held for those wishing to hone their skills. The emphasis is on teaching beginners the necessary skills to catch fish.
    The school/camp also places people with a shared interest in contact with each other, as a result many long lasting friendships are formed. The camp provides a friendly atmosphere where stories are shared, knowledge is acquired and the instructors who donate their time are more than approachable and willing to help. This is the only school/camp of its kind in Tasmania and has been held continuously for over twenty years.
    The school/camp is designed for adults and supervised children who wish to learn the art of fly fishing. Families are especially welcome. Please contact club re family rate.
    Most of the emphasis will be on teaching beginner fly fishers the necessary skills to catch fish.
    However, an intermediate course also exists for those wishing to hone existing skills.

    The camp is based in the southern lakes system at on private land at Hut Bay, Bronte Lagoon (See below). As the camp is of a mobile nature, campers are expected to supply their own tents, sleeping bags, cooking and eating requirements, fishing tackle and equipment. Toilet facilities are provided. It is hoped that campers can supply their own transport.

    A basic list of fishing necessities as well as other necessary information will be provided upon receipt of your registration fees:
    First Year Participant $150.00
    Returnee Participant $70.00
    Please note that the enrolment fee does not include a fishing license but all attendees are required to be licensed at their own expense.

    Closing date for enrolments: 15th December 2015.


    2017 Dates: Sunday 8th to Friday 13th January
