Amidst the beautiful scenery and the cold, rushing streams, we found ourselves immersed in the simple joys of angling.Our day was made complete not only by the trout we caught but also by the company of good friends, as we shared laughs and soaked in the tranquility of our surroundings.As we reluctantly bid farewell to the countryside, we carried with us memories of a day filled with fun, friendship, and the thrill of the catch.

Our Passion for Fly Fishing:

At Tasmania Fly Fishing, we are truly passionate about trout fishing, particularly the thrill of dry fly fishing. Our goal is to spread the joy and excitement of fishing in the breathtaking landscapes of Tasmania. We believe in breaking down the misconception that fly fishing is exclusively for purists, as we welcome anglers of all levels of experience and backgrounds.

As responsible fishermen, we adhere to the principles of “Catch and Release” in our fly fishing practices. We understand the importance of preserving the delicate balance of our fishery, and we are committed to promoting sustainability and conservation. We are grateful for the abundant fishery we have in Tasmania and strive to protect it for future generations to enjoy.

Above all, we want to emphasize that fishing is not just about the catch—it’s about relishing the outdoors, immersing ourselves in nature, and having an absolute blast while fishing. We believe in fostering a sense of fun and adventure in every fishing experience we offer. Join us in celebrating the wonders of the natural world and the joy of fishing in Tasmania.

These policies and procedures are intended to only provide the framework for a guiding engagement that is personally tailored to meet the outcomes desired by you, the client. You are encouraged to review the content below and ask for clarity on anything unclear to you. This section sets out the conditions and understandings for a professional relationship between “Tasmania Fly Fishing” (Scott Murphy) and you, the client.

The health and safety of all of our clients, representatives of “Tasmania Fly Fishing”, the general public and the surrounding environment is and always will be of high importance and priority.

No fires, destruction or damage of property or the leaving of rubbish or cigarette butts is allowed while on any of our tours. Full disclosure to the guide of any medical conditions including but not limited to allergies and physical limitations is a formal requirement to allow the proper facilitation of the tour is an expressed requirement. We operate fly fishing tours in Tasmania, out of the Launceston area, that are drug and alcohol free as impairment of this kind may impact the safety levels of the individuals participating within any tour or workshop.

Liability Waiver

In order to ensure that all participants are covered by our public liability insurance, our insurer mandates that participants agree to the following waiver:

During your fishing tour, your guide will provide necessary safety advice as required throughout the duration of the day. Our guides make every effort to ensure the safety of participants to the best of their abilities. However, participants are expected to take personal responsibility for their actions and involvement during the tour. By agreeing to the waiver, participants acknowledge and accept that certain activities undertaken during the tour may carry inherent risks, including the potential for injury or even death. Participants willingly assume these risks. For participants under the age of 16, guardians must agree to the waiver on their behalf.

Equipment Usage:

Obtaining and maintaining all of the equipment necessary for the smooth and safe operation of a quality guided fly fishing service takes considerable time and capital investment. When guiding, each client is decked out in approximately $1,000 worth of wading equipment and $1,000 worth of fly fishing equipment. We expect all clients to look after the gear as if it were your own and agree that if you damage any equipment through your own negligence, that you accept liability for the damaged goods. Or in other words, you break it you buy it. To be fair and reasonable, if we can repair items at low cost, or source replacement items at wholesale prices, we will do so in an attempt to minimise costs wherever possible. We haven’t had to invoke this clause yet, and hope it stays that way. Please take care!

If paying by PayPal, we’d advise paying at least 3 days prior to allow for funds to clear, if by bank transfer, then at least 24 hours prior to allow funds to clear, and if by cash, please let us know and we’ll finalise payment in cash at collection / pick up.

Alternative payment options: you can use PayPal (4 payment option) or we can arrange a weekly direct debit authority to operate between now and the tour date.

Cancellations:

Our first approach will be to re-schedule to another date within the next 12 months. If rescheduling is not an option, then cancellations with notice of more than 28 days prior to commencement of tour, 75% of deposit will be refunded. 28-15 days prior to commencement of tour, 50% of deposit will be refunded. 14-8 days prior to commencement of tour, 25% of deposit will be refunded. 7 days or less prior to commencement of tour, none of the 25% deposit will be refunded.

More background on the business owner – Scott Murphy

Tasmania Fly Fishing Charters
Scott Murphy – House Guide and Business Owner

Scott grew up in a rural farming area of Tasmania. There were great streams in the area 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.

Scott’s Journey: From Farm Life to Personal and Business Coaching

Scott’s childhood in a small country town in Tasmania’s northern midlands was filled with the joys of farm life and the rural surroundings. However, as he grew older, his family made the decision to move closer to more populated areas, seeking the comforts of urban living. Scott attended school and played sports like many other kids, eventually finding work in kitchens and the motor industry.

As time went on, Scott’s career path took an exciting turn. He climbed the ladder in a national retail department store chain, starting from entry-level positions and eventually becoming a store manager. This role presented him with incredible opportunities, including opening numerous new stores both in Tasmania and Victoria. Building on this experience, he dedicated himself to furthering his qualifications in business, accounting, management, and training. With his newfound expertise, Scott ventured into entrepreneurship, establishing his own consulting service that offered accounting, bookkeeping, and management consulting to local businesses. He even explored the unexpected realm of master franchise car detailing operations for a period.

Continually seeking personal growth and expansion, Scott pursued qualifications in personal therapy, life coaching, and counseling. Combining his diverse skill set and extensive experiences, he now runs a personal and business coaching service called All Round Guide in Launceston, Tasmania. When he’s not indulging in his passion for fly fishing, Scott dedicates himself to helping individuals and businesses thrive by drawing on his expertise in coaching, business management, and personal development.

Scott’s journey is a testament to the power of combining one’s diverse skills, experiences, and passions to create a fulfilling and purpose-driven career.
