Unique Fishing Tours Tasmania are true and experienced specialists in the art of fishing in Tasmania. The company is owned and led by Peter  Donati, who has a lifetime’s experience of our waterways and coasts, a nuanced understanding of the sport, and a knack for finding the fish! 

Whether it’s stalking trout in a small creek, polaroiding a lake, surf fishing from a stunning beach or ‘fishing the hatches’ – matching flies with the insects in season - Peter’s unmatched flair and expertise promises an exhilarating day, whatever the conditions. 

Our half day and full day tours explore the tranquil waterways close to Launceston or venture further afield to the majestic lakes of the Tasmanian highlands. 

We’re proud to offer the only surf fishing operation in Tasmania, and a rare chance to try your hand at bream fishing with a connoisseur of the sport. 

You can also learn about the art of fly tying in Peter’s workshop and elevate your fly casting technique in one-on-one tuition with an expert.

“Pete has fished with me for a couple of years now in New Zealand during the season in February. We have caught some great fish, spotting for each other, exchanging fly advice and most importantly, having a good laugh. Pete is evidently a great all-rounder and not just with a fly rod. For me he has been a great tutor of nymphing.”
