Evinrude E-TEC Motors
After putting 3400 amazing hours on my 90hp Evinrude E-TEC I just had to power the Edgewater 188cc with an Evinrude E-TEC as well. By February 2015, the 150hp Evinrude E-TEC has provided me with 700 faultless, low fuel consumption hours. In commercial operation I need reliability and economic servicing costs and the E-TEC has it in spades! This motor is the best motor I’ve ever owned, Period!

When it comes to Electronics on my boat I won’t compromise on quality. I need the best available units for my boat and that's why I choose Lowrance. I need intuitive units with ease of operation and the HDS Gen 2 sounders fit the bill. Touchscreen operation on my 9" and 12" screens allows customers and myself to access information quickly and precisely with minimum fuss and the images are pin sharp!
I’m very proud to use Lowrance on the boat.

The HydroWave™ is a patented electronic sound device that emits the natural sounds of bait fish and predatory fish feeding on them. Together the sounds produce an instinctive response in nearby predatory fish such as our premiere target, Yellowtail Kingfish. Kingfish and other predatory fish can hear the sounds and feel the vibrations of the sound waves in the water. By hearing the sounds and feeling the vibrations the fish are drawn in the direction of the HydroWave more eager to strike bait. This device is intended to give fishermen a considerable advantage in catching a greater number of fish. I have personally witnessed bait and predators rise and fall as the unit is turned on. My new H2 unit contains many recorded Aussie sounds for our local species including slimy mackerel, surface bream, prawns and even jewfish croaker

There simply is no better fly tackle manufacturer than Sage and I am proud to be a Sage Elite Pro.
When starting out years ago I choose Sage because they were the best, nothing has changed. As a casting and fishing tragic I demand the best in my gear and that’s the reason I choose Sage. From rods and reels to apparel and accessories,
Sage is my choice and a supporter of Sydney Flyfishing Tours..

When it comes to spin and bait casting tackle I just love the functionality, reliability and performance of Daiwa rods and reels. The introduction of Mag sealed rotors, roller bearings and other components has pushed Daiwa well ahead of the pack. This technology is now found throughout the range and means increased durability on top of the already amazing performance. Add to the range the light and bulletproof zion frames and the innovative Automatic Tournament Drag (ATD) and you have a set of reels that are incredible to fish with. I match all my reels to Daiwa's outstanding range of spin and bait casting rods, long considered the greatest rods in the business.

When it comes to finding accessories to compliment my guiding and travelling lifestyle I had a couple of options but only one real choice, Pelican products.
I need so much more than just great coolers on the boat. Protecting photographic gear from saltwater, waterproof lighting, head torches, travel bags, soft bags, waterproof phone cases, the list goes on. The key for me with Pelican products was the incredible build quality, function, innovation and a lifetime warranty on all products. Pelican products are a huge asset to my business

Costa Del Mar
More than most people, I rely on my eyewear to protect my sight and enhance it, no brand does it like Costa.
Thousands of hours in the harsh glare of our strong Australian sun can wreak havoc on eyesight, Costa 580 technology is a godsend for me. Renowned for the clearest polarized sunglasses on the planet, built in Florida and made for anglers by anglers, I wont wear anything else.
