We recently sponsored a pro fisherman called Corey. This is close to our hearts because our son is a keen fisherman just like Corey. They recently won the Fishing Freshwater Competition at lake Boondooma along with a mate; Kaleb. We thought we would share what Corey had to say about being a pro fisherman.
"As a Pro Angler I fish multiple competitions. Bass fishing is the highest level of professional fishing tournaments in Australia. Competitors must qualify for the Grand final by competing in several rounds all over the east coast of Australia and we must maintain enough points throughout the season to qualify. The pro angler competes all season in QLD and NSW for the opportunity to win the Angler of the Year title and a trip to the USA to represent Australia. I also compete in Barramundi competitions in QLD and Murray Cod competitions in NSW and Victoria.
So when they say life is lonely at the top I fully understand. I have many days away from home in your own bed and 1000's of km's on the road driving. This just adds to the 8 hour days spent on the front deck of the boat honing you skills in any weather hot or cold."
