BREAM PRONAME: Wade Naylor
I started fishing back when I was 4 years old, my pop bought me my first ever fishing combo and showed me how to fish. I've been lure fishing for the better of 10 years and spend a lot of time chasing many different species, ticking a few species off the list.
About 3 years ago, I decided to start targeting bream, which opened up a whole new set of skills and at the start of 2019, I decided to start fishing competitively.
Ive been fortunate enough to travel to different locations chasing bream and still love it. I plan to just keep improving my skills and knowledge and fish a lot more tournaments.

SOME INFO ON ROBBIE :
I grew up in country Victoria, I am a young 42 years old, and I have a beautiful family with 3 daughters.
I currently own a Hobie PA14, 2 person Indian canoe, 3.9m savage custom electric boat & a bass boat Triton explorer18 running a 200 V8 merc motor.
My fishing started when I was in Victoria, with like most others, with my dad and pop. We chased trout in the lakes and streams all over Victoria, as well as cod, redfin and yellowbelly. My favourite lakes are lake Purrumbete and Bullen Merri where we would chase chinook salmon & Atlantic salmon.. Bullen Merri is now a bass stocked lake
I came to QLD 15 years ago for work and loved the fishing and weather, so we stayed.
My main target species is bass, and mostly all freshwater species, I do like dabbing in some local saltwater, searching for mangrove jacks, barramundi and of course flathead. I love bank bashing creeks, streams and small ponds, trying my best to avoid ticks, snakes and spiders... hahaha.
My favourite bass go to lure is the trusty HALCO TWISTY. Its my confident bait. I spent a lot more time on the water these days helping others to achieve the enjoyment we have been able to experience in years past.
In time I have learnt to carve and make my own lures with help of great anglers and lure makers. I enjoy tying my own flys and tinkering with the weird techniques out there that are not highly promoted. I currently own the VOODOO LURE and JP LURE brand.
FLATHEAD PRONAME: Brodie Angel
SOME INFO ON BRODIE:
My fishing adventures started when I was about 5 years old with my mum, dad and uncle, chasing bread and butter fish on the Fraser Coast.
Later in life, I moved down to North Brisbane where I would chase sharks with my mates off our local jetties and beaches.
I started getting into using hardbodies and soft plastics a couple of years ago when I purchased my first kayak, chasing flathead, bream, bass and reef species.
I currently own a Hobie pa14. The adventures I have had is what I love about kayak fishing.
