Love for fishing

Greg Wright has always loved fishing that he devoted most of his life learning the ropes and spending his time tackling on different species. At five, he already began this hobby with his dad, John, and his two older brothers, Wayne and Brian. Having lived at Gold Coast, Queensland, they frequently visited the Straddie (Stradbroke Island) to fish. Greg even recalls channel fishing and then climbing some berry trees to eat their fruits. Greg fondly shares his memories of making pocket money by selling flat head, bream, white and sand crabs to neighbours.

In 2002, upon getting married and in moving forward with his career, he and his wife moved to Mackay. From there, he still did not stop with his passion. He continued fishing and even thought of widening his horizons through online media.


Bringing the community together


In his hopes of sharing his passion, he developed this web community to bring together fishers and other individuals who have the same interests. Through an ultimate guide in catching a barramundi, he aims to bring out the best in them. He believes that fishing is not only meant for those who can really catch fish; it is also for those seeking for an adventure of a lifetime. Fishing can be a form of family bonding. It tightens up the community as they enjoy being together, being free from life’s tensions – with or without a catch.


Fishing for life


Fishing, for Greg, is not just a hobby. It’s a way of life. With all the lessons he has learned from it, he has discovered the wondrous opportunities that await those who have hope… that people can always strive harder and harder each time. In essence, catching a big fish, for that matter, is more about getting better each day. In striving to be a better person with all the failures and challenges life offers, what one can do is to develop himself into the best he can be, trying to swim onto the bigger pond where he belongs.

“The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.” -– John Buchan, Scottish novelist, historian and politician
