Benn’s love of fishing dates back to a very early age! Fishing for yellow belly and Murray cod in the western rivers of south west Qld where he grew up. Realising that bait fishing wasn’t his bag, lures soon took over as a new passion! Being very fortunate to have met and been friends with some of the countries greatest timber lure makers only fuelled the passion.
Benn’s fishing dedication mainly focuses on the big predators, being cod and barra. Tournament results have gone hand in hand with a steadfast commitment to his love of these great Australian icons. Having used G.Loomis fishing rods for a big part of his journey, when given the opportunity to use and represent the next generation Edge rods It was a simple decision!
