Tassie flies high with world fishing event
TOURISM operators and regional businesses are set to benefit when Tasmania hosts the 2019 World Fly Fishing Championships.
More than 1000 people are tipped to compete in northern Tasmania in November and December 2019.
The State Government announced a $100,000 contribution to the event yesterday.
Liberal Lyons MHA Guy Barnett said luring the championships to Tasmania was “terrific news” for tourism businesses and the visitor economy. “The World Fly Fishing Championships presents a great opportunity to strengthen our brand by showcasing Tasmania’s clean waterways, beautiful natural surroundings and our worldclass produce,” he said.
