Stephen Gaynor

Member since January 2019 Mosman, Australia
Background
I have been fishing since I was 4 years old and have always been around the water, either surfing, spearfishing, prawning, crabbing, or, of course, fishing. Before I started fly fishing, I dedicated 5 years to the elusive Jewfish, but now I love to chase a multitude of species on the fly, including Jewfish. I’m passionate about what I do and love to share that with other people.
Techniques
I’ve been through a lot of different styles and species, but now I can’t keep a fly rod out of my hand. From fresh to saltwater, I just can’t get enough of it. The one-on-one connection with the fish and love of the cast has changed my life forever.
