Scott founded Wilderness Fly fishing in 2016 because of his passion for fishing wild places.
Learning to cast a fly at the age of twelve, Scott learned his craft from some of Australia’s finest fly fishers, fly tiers, guides and writers. The rivers and streams of North-East Victoria and the Snowy Mountains, as well as the lakes of Victoria’s Goldfield regions played backdrop to what many called a “misspent youth”. We’re still not sure about that!
Like many, Scott’s passion turned to obsession, with him regularly venturing to exotic locations like New Zealand, Tasmania, Montana and many Pacific Islands, including exploratory trips to ‘off-the-grid’ islands.
Nowadays, Scott gains his greatest fulfilment from teaching others the finest details of fly fishing and seeing the enjoyment that it brings them. A trip with Wilderness Fly fishing will not only make you a better fly fisher, it will remind you that fly fishing should always be fun.
Whether you want to learn new skills, master the art, or just have a fun day enjoying the outdoors, Wilderness Fly fishing can tailor a trip to your needs. Want to do it with a group of friends? Scott has a network of equally obsessed and experienced guides that can assist with groups.
Scott is certified in first aid, is a member of the PFIGA (professional guides association) and is fully insured.
