Growing up on the NSW far south coast , fishing has been apart of my life from a very early age.
My “reel addiction” and passion for fishing started not long after my parent’s decided to purchase a house on 40 acres with river frontage. “unknowingly at the time” this river was full of big wild Bass.
Bass were the first species i caught on lure, and as simple as that i was hooked.
Although i do have a soft spot for Bass fishing making the most of every open season, Bream are my main target species these days. The finesse approach that is involved some days is very challenging, therefore very rewarding when you can fool a big old bream into eating an artificial presentation.
My two favourite styles of Bream fishing are one extreme to the other. Summer time surface fishing, some day’s it’s hard to do anything wrong. I also enjoy the challenge of winter fishing. Sight casting small hardbodied lures at black Bream in the clear waters of the upper reaches using 3lb fluorocarbon line, to me this is much more rewarding.
Fishing has become my life on a daily basis and i love it. I manage a tackle store and fish more days than i don’t, and yet i still find myself dreaming about the next big one to crunch my lure.
If you see me on the water or at a tournament come say hello. I’m very easy going and more than happy to chat to anyone about fishing, whether it be passing on my knowledge, learning something new or showing people some of the Frogleys offshore products i am very approachable and happy to help.
