World Fly Fishing Championships 2019 Tasmania. (shocking conditions).

Recommended Posts

Here's a few photos from the WFFC, a few fishing in some very poor conditions on Penstock Lagoon & Little Pine Lake in the Central Highlands yesterday in snow & 35-45 kph winds that were also gusting up to 60 kph.. Today is much worse with snow down to 500 meters and gale force winds of 90-100+ kph.. not sure if today's event was on or not, checked the web cams of both waters and didn't see any boats on them..

Not sure if the river fishing was on either.. I was going for a drive to the Upper Mersey River today to take a few photos but decided to stay home in the warm..

The air temp here in Sheffield at the moment is 2.3 degrees..

cheers

They've certainly had some shocking weather conditions to put up with and it's not much better today either.

No I'm not a contender Rod as it's only for the top fly fishermen from countries around the world, besides that I spin fish for trout and only fish the rivers.. It's not cheap to enter either I couldn't afford it any way.. here's the costing without the travel expenses etc..

** Registration Fees Registration Fees Quantity Price P/P Total Amount Team (competitors, reserve, captain, manager) AUD $ 2250...                           

**  Accompanying persons/guests AUD $ 1500 Additional charges for Single room occupancy AUD $ 400  An official confirmation receipt will be sent once application and entry fees are received.

cheers

November and so far into December has been the worst weather we've seen it here since we moved to Tassie back in March 2000...

At the moment (11:48 am) it's 10.2 degrees here in Sheffield, wind chill factor makes it feel like 2.3 degrees... can only imagine how cold it is in the Highland Lakes area.. wind chill would have to be in the minus temps for sure.. Snowing up there again today..

cheers

Adrian..
