Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
All fish deserve some loving. I like to chase whatever species each season has to offer, and especially prefer anything topwater. Australian bass definitely have a special place in my heart, and each winter I always get withdrawals over them. Thankfully this is when the tuna generally show. Throwing stickballs into patches of sauries, whilst watching big sickles launch has got to be the pinnacle of epicness.
As soon as I was born, my dad, Jon, had me in a little back pack, taking me everywhere fishing with him. He is definitely the cause of my addiction. I’m also lucky to be surrounded by some great friends like Ross and my boss Benn who help guide and encourage me.
My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
Narooma, South Coast NSW is my local. It provides a huge variety of options from game fishing for marlin and tuna; kingfish and temperate reef species around Montague Island; estuary systems and creeks with bass; then not too far up the hill you’ll find trout and other freshwater species.
Why I Fish
It makes me happy. I’ve always felt complete when immersed in nature and find a lot of comfort in solo adventures away from the rest of the world. It can also work in the opposite, and be a way to catch up with mates. I enjoy it so much that I’ve made it my job, and am currently skippering boats for Charterfish Narooma.
