You can take the sport to any level and it’s always growing and evolving if you want it to. My interest grew stronger after catching Australian Bass on lures, and soon I was convincing my mum to drop me at the lake with my small boat to enter an ABT (Australian Bass Tournaments) event as my competitive side came out in me. After winning my first ABT event I knew that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
My dream was to one day fish against the best Bass Anglers in the world in the USA and after 10 years of competing in Australia I headed to the States in my Quest to make the Bassmaster Elite Series! The road was not easy but after 4 years of sacrificing everything I was a Bassmaster Elite Angler, taking on the best in the world.
I had 2 years fishing the Bassmaster Elite Series and while having some solid top ten results it wasn’t enough. So this year (2017) I will be aiming to requalify for the Bassmaster Elite Series via the FLW Fishing Tour and Bassmaster Northern Opens.
