Fly-fishing conditions are perfect at Falls Creek. Words by Eleanor Griffin.
The fish are jumping at Falls Creek, causing the fishermen to jump for joy at the fact that the waterways are packed with wild trout. The temperature is mild, the summer flow has settled and the insect population makes the conditions ideal according to Peter Hull, a local fly-fishing guide who offers package deals to guests at the Nelse Lodge. For first-timers there is a deal which includes 2 hours of fly-fishing lessons with Alpine Waters Fly Fishing and two nights at the Lodge, which has an indoor pool, a spa and full breakfast daily.
For double/twin share: $245 per person
