Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
Sight fishing bream using anything I've got in my hand!
Gracious winners and losers in tournament fishing.
My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
My local is the Georges River but Sussex Inlet is where I spent most of my time growing up, it’s definitely where my heart lives.
Why I Fish
Honestly I can’t put the reason into words and even remotely do it justice. I’m just a fisherman, why over think it.
I’ve competed on and off in tournaments since I was about 6. I’ve now competed in close to 250 dedicated bream tournaments which I started doing in 2005. I've had numerous podium positions but most memorable was winning the 2016 Southern Bream Series GF with great mate Glenn Ross, winning three ABT Qualifying Rounds including two back-to-back wins which I was the first to achieve, winning the BREAM Australian Open in 2018 and winning Series 13 of the AFC with Team Hobie and Stewie Dunn and Stephen Mass.
Favourite Fishing Moment
Definitely winning the AFC followed closely by winning the BREAM Australian Open.
