We surprise fishermen and women around the country with amazing fishing adventures. They may be at work, home or even in their local tackle store when the Fishing Addiction team comes knocking. On the spot they are put on a plane and the adventure begins! Each winner that comes on the show is given a different challenge that could win them $5,000 worth of fishing gear from Daiwa. It may be a line class challenge, a certain number of species or a species of a certain size. Regardless of the challenge, the trips are to some of the best fishing locations in Australia and are guaranteed to never be forgotten.
I knew from a very young age that fishing was my passion and I would continue to chase that ever-elusive ‘fish of a life time’ for the rest of my days. Fishing is one of those sports that you can never really master. There is always something to learn and the dream of capturing a new species, using an unproven technique or even visiting a new location is the constant challenge that keeps me going.
I have been lucky in recent years to travel to many amazing locations throughout this wonderful country of ours. Fishing with some of the best guides and in some of the best locations I have learnt so much and hope that through the television shows we produce that our viewers may pick up a trick or two. I really am no-one special, I’m just a guy that has managed to find a way to share my addiction with other fishing addicts. I have caught just about everything that swims and now I get to share my experiences with a new member each time we travel. I literally have the best job in the world!
Aside from fishing my family is my passion. Being a father is a true blessing and watching my kids grow and develop is just awesome. They love fishing too and as they get a little older I can’t wait to take them along on some of our adventures. I have also made some great friendships along the way and am constantly amazed at how passionate people are about fishing in this country.
My goal will always be to produce the most entertaining and informative fishing production possible. We will continue to push the boundaries of production, always looking for that impossible shot to bring our viewers as close to the action as possible. Thanks for your support. See you on the water.
