Mayfly Tackle Aussie Fly Design Team


Mayfly Tackle is proud to deliver custom fly selections developed specifically for Australia by local experts and tied to the high standards of Fulling Mill. Each of our local guides and fly tying gurus has selected their most reliable, 'must-have' patterns, which appear in the product sections, along with expert advice on how to fish them.



Christoper Bassano

Christopher has fished extensively throughout the world in both fresh and salt water. A guide with over 20 years experience, he has a knack of finding fish for clients. He has guided in the north of Australia chasing species such as sailfish, black marlin, giant trevally, tuna, queenfish and barramundi. The fresh water of Tasmania, however, is his home and Christopher has fished practically every piece of water that Tasmania has to offer.

In 2006, Christopher was the 'Coach' of the Australian Fly Fishing Team at the World Fly Fishing Championships in Portugal. He recently won the Tasmanian Rivers Fly Fishing Championships (2010), is a Certified Casting Instructor with the Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) and is currently the Vice President of the Trout Guides and Lodges Association of Tasmania (TGALT). He has written extensively for many fly fishing publications, both in Australia and internationally, and has been featured on the front cover of the Japanese "FlyFisher" magazine. Appearing on many fishing shows on both television and DVD's, Christopher also presented and produced the highly acclaimed "Tasmanian Fly Fishing Techniques Volumes 1 and 2" - Tasmania's best selling fly fishing DVDs.


Bill Beck

A member of the Tasmanian Professional Trout Guides Association, Bill has been a fixture in the highlands of Tasmania for decades and has guided thousands of anglers to success. His patterns reflect his wealth of experience and unique perspective on trout fishing.


Chris Beech

Chris is one of Australia's best known fly tiers. His tying career started in 1985 and has spanned more than three decades. His innovative patterns have caught a huge variety of species and have made him a household name amongst Australian anglers. Chris has been the writer behind the incredibly popular 'On the Beach' column, which has appeared in FlyLife magazine since it's inception in 1995.

With experience in everything from trout and freshwater natives to saltwater species on the flats and offshore, Chris is ideally placed to advise Fulling Mill on the patterns most useful to Australian anglers.
