Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
Anything and everything! I am just as at home chasing bream in my local creeks as I am offshore fishing for kingfish and tuna. If it has a tail and eats a lure, I want to catch it.
My grandfather and uncle were by far my greatest inspirations and the first people to put a rod in my hand. These days much of my inspiration comes from high profile tournament anglers and influencers on social media. There is nothing like seeing pictures of big fish to make you dream about your next day out.
My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
Why I Fish
For me, it is more about the journey than anything else. Spending time with friends, meeting new people and just enjoying the great outdoors. You never stop learning, every new person you fish with, every new species you target there is always a challenge and you learn something new each trip. Plus, you make memories that last a lifetime, I wouldn’t want to do anything else.

Favourite Fishing Moment
How can I pick just one… If I had to, it would have to be a day offshore near Kangaroo Island where the stars aligned and we had kingfish on tap most of the day. Not huge fish, but still so exciting sight casting them with just about any lure you wanted. Top the day off with Samsonfish and nannygai (red snapper) and it was a pretty amazing day.
