The Meander Valley community has put their hands up to the big task of helping to feed 120 competitors each day during the World Fly Fishing Championships.
A group of more than 50 volunteers will gather in the Meander Hall each morning and afternoon over the course of the five day event to ensure the anglers are welcomed by some Tasmanian hospitality.
Meander Hall secretary treasurer Christine Chilcott said the angler's could face a 45 minute walk before they arrived at their fishing spot each day and salad rolls were the best option for the long day.
"They don't start fishing until 1pm and because the lunches are leaving here at 9.30am in the morning there had to be some way we could keep them a bit fresh, so we went with salad rolls," she said.

The Deloraine Pony Club, Deloraine Junior Basketball, the Meander Hall committee and the Meander Shop are volunteering their time to feed the world's best anglers.
The volunteers will feed teams from 23 countries with more than a 1000 people expected to be involved in the event from competitors, judges, facilitators and coaches.
Each competitor will get a salad roll, a nutri bar, fresh fruit, a slice and two drinks.
Mrs Chilcott said 60 lunches would be picked up each day from the hall and the other 60 would be driven by a volunteer to meet competitor buses in Deloraine.
"We're all in this together," she said.
"We know we can do it, but it's just a tad nerve wracking because we are feeding people from all parts of the world so we are on show."
Volunteers will prep food each afternoon, before returning at 8am the next day to pack the lunches fresh each morning.
Meander Valley Council are sponsoring the lunches, with all profits going back to the volunteer groups.
