Despite Labor’s false claims, it is a matter of public record that we have already categorically ruled out any new taxes which would include a tinny levy or tackle tax on rods and lines.
A majority Gutwein Liberal Government are the biggest supporters of fishing in Tasmania and this is simply Rebecca White once again trying to lure Tasmanians with deceptive falsehoods.
We recognise that recreational fishing is a much-loved part of our way of life, and that Tasmania has some of the best recreational sea fishing in the world with over 100,000 recreational fishers.
That’s why we have significantly invested in recreational fishing and angling, and look forward to announcing our policy soon.
While Labor’s casting slippery lines, we’re focused on our strong plan to Secure Tasmania’s Future.
