Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
I think the old saying “Jack of all trades-master of none” applies in this case as I love so many different styles of fishing. Casting lures at school tuna and yellowtail kings, the scream of the reel as a mulloway takes off, stalking goldens and queenies on a Whitsunday flat, the surface boof of a big EP, getting the trolling spread right for big lake trout...I love any sort of fishing.
I grew up listening to Rex Hunt's radio show before there was any other fishing media around.
My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
Tough one...a flat summers day stalking surface kings, a calm misty dawn chasing mulloway at Nelson or the anticipation of casting into a lure into a flowing trout run in a local South West river.
Why I Fish
I love the imagery side of fishing. I’m completely happy not to get a bite but to take a great image of a fish brings me a lot of happiness. I love all aspects of fish and fishing but get a special kick out of helping people catch fish.
Regularly fished ABT tournaments from 2004 to 2014 with 18 top ten results with some highlights being a 4th in the 05 GF, a 2nd at ABT Mallacoota and a 1st in a BASS Electric round.
Favourite Fishing Moment
Tough one...watching my son land a 120cm Lake Proserpine barra out of our own boat was pretty special.
