I've fished in North Queensland for over 30 years, I grew up fishing for Jungle Perch and Sooty Grunter along the banks of the Mulgrave river which eventuated into an obsession with Barramundi fishing. Then onto big Barramundi fishing which became my life for many years. I started guiding to spend more time fishing and work in an industry I love. I've guided all across the top end of Australia for sport fishing lodges and multiple luxury mothership operations. I'm very fortunate to have grown up in the FNQ region with many different sportfishing options and being able to access the remote back country so easily.
