Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
I love catching just about anything, especially if it involves going bush, on foot and exploring. If some topwater action comes into it, even better. I don’t really have favourites at all. Whatever is happening or I feel like doing is what I generally do.

My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
My local is the Camden Haven River but I rarely fish it out of the boat, I do wade it for flatties and spend a bit of time on the wall chasing jew, but I normally like getting out and about and really mixing it up.
Why I Fish
Because of my love for fish and the outdoors.
ABT BREAM and BASS, Hobie Kayak Bream Series and a few international events here and there. 2019 saw me in South Africa at the Bass Fishing World Championships and World Fishing Games, South Korea for the Korean Open Mercury Cup and Malaysia for the Monsoon Cup.
Favourite Fishing Moment
Too numerous to nail down just one, but in recent memory it would be the second place that Team Australia and I achieved in 2019 in the World Bass Fishing Championships.
