WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BLACK MAGIC PRODUCT?
They are all my favourite! Seriously though I can’t pick. Since the day I started using Black Magic products I haven’t looked back for so many reasons – the quality, they’re long-lasting, effective and easy to use, and made well with quality materials!
The things I use the most are the Squid Snatchers® and Whiting Snatchers®. Perfect for what I target and there’s not a day I don’t catch a fish on the whiting rigs. The size of the fish I land on such a small rig is mind-blowing.
WAT ARE YOUR FISHING GOALS FOR THE NEXT 12 MONTHS?
Working at events with WIRF to encourage women and kids to get into fishing more independently and show them all the benefits of fishing and how to easily access it.
I’m also working on my own TV projects with WIRF and with Michael from OZFish TV.
I’d like to travel more to explore new fishing grounds and meet like-minded people.
My goal is to be a voice in the industry and to bring about a change that is needed to help grow the industry for the future, by creating more balance and equality.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM CATCH OR FISHING ADVENTURE?
My dream fish would be a kingfish caught in New Zealand. I loved watching 'Big Angry Fish' episodes – that really got my sense of adventure and adrenaline rushing.
And I’d love to visit Arnhem Land in Australia to learn some cultural and indigenous ways to fish and appreciate Australian culture.
WHAT TIPS WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE JUST LEARNING TO FISH?
Study up on location, target species, weather, facilities and basic gear to start.
There’s a range of educational tools you can access via the internet including fishing pages and groups on social media, follow influencers and other anglers on social media, or going to events or talks at your local fishing club or tackle store.
I’d highly recommend using charters or guides to start to get a feel of it and work out your fishing style.
Just trust yourself and give it a go. You will learn from trial and error, and work out what you want to do and where you want to go.
Surround yourself with like-minded people and go out with experienced people.
Adventure and time in nature can outweigh catching a fish. Catching a fish is the bonus.
