Australia, a vast continent of streams, rivers, estuaries and lake systems has understandably some fantastic freshwater fly fishing opportunities on offer. From central New South Wales to the Victorian high country on the east coast, there are numerous blue ribbon brown, rainbow and brook trout rivers to explore.
This also includes chasing native species such as the Australian Bass and iconic Murray Cod which sits on top of the food chain. Famous lakes such as Eucumbene hold very big Trout, while in Victoria, the western lakes district and goldfields are home to arguably some of Australia’s best stillwater trout fisheries.
The coastal estuaries in Victoria such as the Nelson, Bemm River and Mallacoota Inlet systems also provide fantastic opportunities to target Mulloway, Estuary Perch and Black Bream which are a great challenge on fly.
