Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
Drift spinning soft plastics for snapper, sight casting for bream and fishing flooded water for trout.
Both my father and grandfather had myself and my siblings fishing from a very young age. As far as lure fishing/tournament fishing I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Andrew Krushka, when I started getting serious about fishing with artificial baits he was the one to lead me in the right direction.
My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
Anderson Bay, Bridport
Why I Fish
For the love of the outdoors. You just never know what the day might bring. It’s the little things like dolphins popping up or catching a new species for me that make fishing as special as it is.
