Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
I enjoy every aspect of fishing and don't have a favourite as much, more so figuring out what the fish want on that particular day.
I was inspired by my dad at a very young age to start fishing and fish with him. He is the reason I fish and I will always be truly grateful that he showed me this life and the places it takes you in the world.
My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
My local includes anything and everything you could desire as a fisherman and this is a very big reason for my move to Airlie Beach.
Why I Fish
For the challenge of me versus the fish.
My tournaments each day are me versus the fish.
Favourite Fishing Moment
A moment in life I'll never forget was taking dad barra fishing for the first time and we bought a couple of lures and a particular brag mat on the way to Awoonga Dam. He made a joke to me and said the measure mats aren't big enough at 1200mm. Later that night he landed his first ever barra at 1300mm.
