I have been fishing for as long as I can remember and my passion for this sport is still as strong today as it was way back then, when I was a young boy.

I grew up in the rural township of Deloraine, with the Meander River flowing through its heart. Many hours were spent along the river banks with a tin of worms and infinite patience. Sometimes I would be rewarded for it, many times I wouldn’t, and upon reflection there were far too many times when I arrived home with an empty creel and nothing to show for my efforts.

That being said, and ‘once again upon reflection’, with every trip I ventured out on, I think I learned a little more, soon my luck began to change ‘dramatically’ for the better. I had learned the “basics of fishing”.

Building Cane Rods

I had a young guy from Melbourne called Jack McCowan visit me last week.  He wanted to shoot some video of me working and interview me at the same time.  I nearly said no, but I had a look at a film he'd done before (called Three Two One - on his website - http://www.adventureproject.org) and he looked like he had a lot of potential.
He's using a Canon 7D DSLR for the video.  He has all the attachments to make the video work.  As you can see - he has done a really good job after spending a few short hours with me:

He has been working as a Ski Instructor and Outdoor Event Coordinator in Vic (Mt Baw Baw), and been traveling overseas too.  He's headed back to Melbourne, looking to do some freelance video and look for other work at the ABC etc.
Best Regards, Nick Taransky
