Fisherman. Author. World Record Holder. Fishing Ambassador. Experienced Tour Guide. Gary comes highly recommended with a wealth of experience in tour guiding, fly fishing and hooking bonefish. Not only has he fished in the amazing waters of Christmas Island, his most recent bonefish catch was a massive 14lber and 83cms long. Released (as all bonefish are), he likes to believe this fish is living out its life in the beautiful lagoons of the South Pacifc. His expertise, experience and enthusiasm for guide fishing will ensure you have the fishing experience of a lifetime.
