- About Us
Welcome to Adrenalin Flies, a small family business in the beautiful Huon Valley in southern Tasmania. I’m Glenn Szalman and I’ve been fishing since I was a boy, when my Pop used to take me out on the banks of the Toomuc Creek in Pakenham, Victoria for trout and eels. About 18 years ago I started Fly fishing North West Victorian streams including the Howqua, the Goulburn, the Mitta Mitta River and Tallangatta Creek as well as King River and its tributaries, to name a few.
I love getting out into the outdoors, to places that very few people see, and the challenge of catching an animal that is unpredictable in its behaviour. One day, for instance, it will eat a well presented Royal Wulff and the next day refuse outright.
In 2002 I moved to Tasmania with my wife for a simpler life and to raise my family in stunning surroundings. (The quality of the fly fishing had nothing to do with moving here. Honest.)
I’ve learnt a lot about lake fly fishing since living here and spent many happy hours exploring the Central Highland Lakes and the streams and rivers around the Huon Valley, and I’ve just finished a 2 year term as President of the Kingborough Anglers.
I aim to provide affordable high quality fly fishing gear online, with great customer service. I’ve taken time to source and test good quality fishing products from around the globe. All Adrenalin Flies stock has to pass my own strict standards. I only sell gear I would use myself.
In many situations you only get one shot at a fish. I want Adrenalin Flies to help you land it.
See you on the water
