In addition to the accommodation through which the Thredbo and Little Thredbo Rivers meander within the 150 acre property, Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa offers a highly professional onsite fly fishing guide and expert casting instructor.
There are very few moments our head guide Matt Tripet can’t be found wading an alpine stream, or river with a fly rod in hand. His passion for fly fishing and people is certainly evident when he is guiding on the water. Hailing from New England NSW, Matt first picked up a fly rod at age of 12 and from that moment the sport truly become an obsession.
Since then, Matt has introduced many people to the art of fly fishing, and coached them in all aspects of this sport. Matt is a Certified Casting Instructor with the International Federation Fly of Fishers, working on the rigorous Masters certification. His professionalism and skills are inspired by 20 years of fly fishing waters in Australia and New Zealand and a degree in Education. His specialized approach to guiding has placed him along a strong network of highly acclaimed fishing personalities, Steve Starling, Peter Morse, Simon Zarifeh and John Haenke.
As a guide and instructor, Matt is in his element. There is nothing he enjoys more than sharing with others the intricacies of this fantastic sport and the beautiful alpine water ways found in the NSW Snowy Mountains region. Whether you are a first-timer, with a group or an experienced angler our team will make sure you have the complete fly fishing experience in one of the most beautiful places in Australia.
