The Australian Fly Fishing Museum is open from 10am – 4pm on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Our Museum is manned by volunteers, so occasionally these hours may not be met. If you are making a specific journey to visit the museum please contact Al on 0447393899 to check that the museum will be open.
The Australian Fly Fishing Museum operates under the National Trust and a dedicated committee. It is housed in a cottage on the grounds of Clarendon on the South Esk River, about 15 minutes from Launceston airport in northern Tasmania. Clarendon House is Australia’s finest Georgian mansion.
The Museum will collect, care for, interpret, and display angling equipment, art and artifacts that explain the traditions and techniques of our sport. We will promote the values of fly fishing, especially respect for the habitats of fly-responsive fishes. We will provide a national gathering place for anglers. And we will conduct educational programs in fly casting, fly tying, fishing etiquette, angling history, river ecology and aquatic insects.
