Goulburn: Oral History of Mick Hall


Goulburn: Oral History of Mick Hall


An interview in three parts.

Mick Hall is a fly fisher living in Alexandra in Victoria. He learned how to fish when he was four years of age. After a break, he took up fishing again around the age of 14 and has been fishing ever since.

Mick speaks about how he came to be involved in fly fishing and the Red Tag Fly Fishing Club; the water quality and how fostering a relationship and ongoing communication with authorities helps to address river issues; restocking the river; floods and droughts; the environmental impacts of willows; and the change in attitudes amongst users of the river from that of neglect to one of protection and conservation.

Mention of:

Willow trees, Trout, maggots, platypus.

Australian Trout Foundation, Red Tag Fly Fishing Club
