Tom began fishing as soon as he could hold a rod; although his pram was used as an impromptu rod holder by his dad well before that. His entire childhood was spent on or by the water which he blames for the unhealthy obsession he has for the fishing now.
Tom’s father first introduced him to fly fishing as a young teenager and since then he has never looked back. His formative years in the sport were spent cutting his teeth on the plethora of subtropical saltwater and sweetwater species found in the waters of South East Queensland, and disappointing Peter Morse at one of his casting clinics.
Since those years, Tom has waved a rod over an immeasurable amount of water, both locally and internationally, and landed close to 50 species of fish on his embarrassingly self-tied flies. These days, he calls the Central Highlands of NSW home with his partner and border collie, where trout and Murray cod are his fly fishing passion.
