Twig & Stream’s fly fishing guides operate within 90 minutes of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Meet us on location or we can arrange transfers to and from the city centre.
Your fly fishing guide will take you on adventure tailored to your requirements; you can fish for wild brown and rainbow trout in a variety of waters: from pristine mountain streams to small meandering lowland rivers. Your guide has over 25 years continuous fly-fishing experience to draw upon, knows the local waters, and is a qualified casting instructor.
You fish and the guide guides. For one or two persons (per guide). We can tailor a number of packages for guided on-stream fishing. Typically we base this in and around the Yarra Ranges near Melbourne. (within 90 mins). However multi day trips can be organised further a field. There are options ranging from small bush clad mountain streams, meandering lowland streams, or a tail water larger fishery. We tailor the day to suit your needs and preferences, and take into account local conditions on the day.
For a more relaxed day, you can try accompanied fishing/tuition. This is a more economical option, and is ideal for those who do not wish to fish hard all day, and would like to learn through doing and observing.
Your guide shares some of their favourite water; your guide will encourage you to fish the best of the water, and will demonstrate how best to fish different stretches, making sure you get the most out of the day. We balance between fishing and tuition to suit your needs and preferences.
