Australia is blessed with some of the most unique and inspiring angling that the world and fishing has to offer. Oceans that capture our souls and pristine inland waterways that nourish our desire to escape the stresses of urban existence, sit side by side with our expanse collection of reefs, beaches, estuaries, lakes and rivers, to endower anglers with a diverse collective of angling opportunities and species that are truly unique. As an angler nothing inspires as us deeply or generates as much excitement as seeking out a new destination. South East Queensland boasts a plethora of impoundments teaming with Australia Bass. This is a region of Australia that is at the forefront of the development of recreational bass fisheries and one such angler that has been part of its development from its inception is Simon Goldsmith. Well known in the tournament scene as the “face” of the ABT tournament scene, he is also one of the finest most technical bass anglers in Australia.
