Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
Favourite Technique: Topwater is life.
Favourite Species: Currently it's the mighty yellowtail kingfish, though snapper are very special to me!
Fishing Style: Is to fish hard, casting topwater all day requires effort... and trying to work out fish and the conditions you're presented with in an effort to catch consistently.
My grandfather, Rex Hunt, uur two boys Milo & Roly and some of the keen anglers I've met since the start of social media.
My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
The Coffs Harbour region.
Why I Fish
I thoroughly enjoy the challenge both mentally and physically, the escape from the norm and the amazing places you're able to fish in. We're very lucky!

Favourite Fishing Moment
Landing my first 20kg plus topwater king in local waters was as good as it gets, the bite and the fight were proper awesome. Also seeing our little boys develop as anglers... that's so rewarding!
