The introduction of trout to Tasmania in 1864 is a fascinating story. Jean Walker, an honorary historian to the Southern Tasmanian Licensed Anglers’ Association set the record straight in this factual and interesting account of the characters and historical circumstances that have led to Tasmania becoming the undisputed home of trout fishing in Australia.

The perseverance and huge investment in time, money and passion by the dedicated group of pioneering anglers was extraordinary, particularly given the technology of the time.

First published in 1988, this edition is republished to celebrate the sesquicentenary of the introduction of trout to Tasmania and the Southern Hemisphere.
