Member since October 2014

Porirua, New Zealand

Background
I love the freedom of the open water, a bit like riding a bike. I became a fisherman because I love challenges and being independent, I passionately don't like captivity and some workplace cultures. I have a trades background and can turn my hand to a lot of things. I like scuba and fee-diving more than fishing but save those for my hobbies.
Techniques
Bottom fishing with bait is best for most beginners trolling is good when pelagics are around I like casting lures but its hard to tell what most customers are capable of doing and the deepwater bait fishing can be very hard for some people
