Favourite Technique / Species / Fishing Style
I love all my trout fishing particularly in the rivers, fishing with the Duo Realis Minnow 80mm. Also love all of my blue water and topwater fishing for yellowtail Kingfish and the southern bluefin.
My inspiration has always come from my father and have been fishing by his side for as long as I can remember and he is the reason I love it so much by teaching me what can happen but what it takes to get that to happen.
My Local (Favourite Fishing Spot)
I love to fish many different areas and spots but I have always loved the upper Hopkins River and the Merri River.
Why I Fish
I fish because it is an escape from everyday life and just to get out into the unknown and wilderness to experience what others could not even process in their minds.
Favourite Fishing Moment
My favourite moment in fishing would have to be when I caught my personal best Kingfish from my favorite shallow water area for them, coming in at 126cm and 15.4kg. Myself and my father had worked so hard to work through the small ones to crack the 15kg mark. Now to get a 20kg South West Vic King.
