Anthony William "Tony" Fletcher (born 27 October 1934) is a former Australian politician. He was an Independent member of the Tasmanian Legislative Council from 1981 to 2005, representing first Russell and then Murchison.

Fletcher, who was born in Hobart, first entered the Council in 1981; although an Independent, he served as Leader of the Liberal Government in the Legislative Council from 1986–89 (during Robin Gray's premiership) and from 1996–98 (Tony Rundle's premiership). In 1999, the seat of Russell was replaced with Murchison, which Fletcher won. He retired from the Legislative Council in 2005.[1]
