Tasmania Fly Fishing
Testimonial I’m writing specifically to say thank you for my fly fishing experience while in Launceston.Things that were against us on both days included pretty dodgy weather and plenty of wind but … no problem for Scott! Given the conditions, you selected the rivers which didn't just put us out of the wind but we were able to enjoy beautiful surroundings and some of the best trout water I have ever had the pleasure to fish. Logan did a first-class job for me, spotting, coaching and encouraging. I think 5 fine fish landed and more hookups made my day wonderful. Between you and Logan the fish clearly had no chance.When you and Logan released me to be “the master of my own destiny” towards the end of the day you put me onto a wonderful fish. I did my best and the hookup was fantastic … what a great fish it was. Even when I managed to lose that fish (the best one I have ever hooked on a fly) I felt really satisfied with much of the engagement. Thank you, Scott and Logan, for two of the best days fishing I have ever enjoyed.Peter Shands ... See MoreSee Less

Time to say G’Day to your guides, Today is the formal introduction of Logan Reid as a house guide. Logan's love for fly fishing started back in 2009, however, it didn't take long for that love to grow into a passion. In 2015 Logan started fly fishing in the St Patrick's river and its small headwater streams. For Logan, there is a beautiful journey to experience when fly fishing. First, it is the thrill of finding the fish, then watching the fish see where its beat is, to see what the fish is feeding on, and then planning the best way to catch the fish with his favoured dry fly. Logan makes an excellent guide because of his passion, patience, love for the bush, being outdoors, and with this growing knowledge of the Tasmania fish, lakes and rivers, native plants, and animals. He really is a pleasure to spend time fishing with.To find out more about Logan you can click the link below. About us - www.tasmaniaflyfishing.com.au/about-us-tasmania.../ ... See MoreSee Less

Recently Peter came for some guided fly fishing and although he ended up with 5 fish, I thought it was interesting how much his casting improved over just the first day. Video 1 shows casting early on the first day and the second is his casting in the afternoon. Great loop control and line management improvements. ... See MoreSee Less

More background about your guide, Scott Murphy:

Scott Murphy - Owner & Operator of Tasmania Fly Fishing

Scott Murphy – Fly Fishing Penstock Lagoon Tasmania

Scott grew up in a rural farming area of Tasmania. There were great streams in the back yard and his family often traveled up to the lake country when they could. His parents and grandparents were all hard-working salt of the earth type people and all connected well with nature. All were some sort of small business operators, farm managers, kitchen managers, and hard labor workers over their time. Those values steered Scott through many successful and sometimes testing careers in retail, management, hospitality, tourism, accounting, consulting, training as well as involvement in the motor industry with ownership of a state-wide car detailing franchise system.

He acknowledges that he is happy to have this great opportunity to follow his passions and enjoy the fantastic nature and people here in Tasmania. He sees his role as an opportunity to explore ways with clients to achieve the outcomes they desire, using the processes he’s trained, certified and experienced in.

His qualifications include an Advanced Diploma of Business – Accounting, Certification as a NLP Practitioner and Coach, Certified Workplace Trainer and Teacher, Small Business Management Certification and is a member of the NLP Association of Australia, the Institute of Leaders and Management, the Trout Guides and Lodges Tasmania, an accredited tourism operator with EcoStar Accreditation as well as being a member of the International Institute of Complimentary Therapists

His upbringing in a small country town in the midlands of Tasmania was fortunate and he was blessed enough to experience farm life and the country. However, at an early age, his family moved closer to the comforts of populated areas. He schooled and played sport like many others and went on to work in kitchens and the motor industry before settling into a junior management position in a retail department store.

Over the next years, he worked his way up to store manager and was lucky enough to open many new stores in Tasmania and some in Victoria. Once he moved on from this stage, he finalised all of his qualifications in business, accounting, management and training so that he could open his own consulting service offering accounting, bookkeeping and management consulting services to local businesses. For a while he even moved way left field into a master franchise car detailing operation. Scott has since gained qualifications in personal therapy, life coaching and counselling and now combines all of the above skills and experiences and when not fly fishing, he runs a Consultancy Business called All Round Guide out of Launceston, Tasmania.
