Background
Fishing has been my number one passion for as long as I can remember. I have always been fascinated with the underwater world and fishing is how I connect with it. Throughout my life, I have fished up and down the east coast of Australia chasing everything from Trout to Marlin. My interest has motivated me to gain a science degree majoring in fisheries and aquaculture management. I have worked many years in tourism as a kayak/rafting guide and as a barra fishing guide in Far North Queensland. Today it is our Australian freshwater native fish that continues to capture my attention.
Techniques
My favorite thing to do is fly fishing for Murray Cod. Watching the water EXPLODE around my surface fly when a 25kg bucket mouth fish attacks my offering, is just aces!
