FlyShop 1864 – Trout flies, fly fishing gear, fly tying accessories
Welcome to our boutique fly shop located in Launceston, Tasmania. FlyShop 1864 supplies anglers with quality fly fishing gear and is proud dealers of Orvis and Patagonia. Owned and operated by Daniel and Simone Hackett, FlyShop 1864 is the sister business of RiverFly Tasmania which offers guided fly fishing expeditions.
You might be asking, why 1864? Well its simple, this was the year that trout first landed in Tasmania, giving birth to one of the world’s great fisheries, and is the reason we even exist.
As fishing guides and trout bums we like to stock the gear which we and those of our friends use, that way we know its worth buying. We appreciate craftsman and their handmade gear so you’ll find anything from handmade cane rods to flies tied by local fly fisherman. We are big advocates of women’s fly fishing and specialise in women’s specific gear. Having the only female fly shop owner in the country, we can offer advice and tuition from a different point of view.
We are pleased to be the first and largest Australian supplier of Patagonia waders and fly fishing gear, and the only Orvis accredited dealer in Tasmania.
We look forward to assisting you with your queries be it about gear, guided fishing or just some local fishing advice.
Happy fishing. Dan & Sim.
