The Highland Fly is able to provide fly casting instruction for people interested in learning how to cast a fly line.
The instruction will be mainly land-based but will progress to casting into the water to understand the dynamics of landing flies on water and lifting them off the water.
This service is available in Hobart.

28 Gates is a private fishery in the picturesque Derwent Valley, about one hour’s drive from Hobart. With four lakes stocked with brown, rainbow, brook and tiger trout it is a great destination for experienced and beginner fishers alike. For beginners it provides a great opportunity to practice basic casting skills in a setting where you are very likely to cast to visible fish. Obviously for experienced fishers, the sight fishing to large fish is similarly a highlight.
