I also have european white beach and Australian red cedar that are arguably the best timbers for the purpose. I hav...

Re: Fishing Tassie

Lake Skinner - about 1 hr south of Hobart and a couople of hours hike-in. Rainbow trout fishery. We chose one of the few fine weather days in the year to go there.
This was taken a couple of years ago. Only 2 fish between three of us on this day.
