“Do not go where the path may lead, but go where there is no path and leave a trail” 👇
Only Australian to ever qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series……….Twice!!
Some of the greatest motivational speeches that have been told to me are from those who said I couldn’t do something. Thank you!!
I envisioned my goals and destiny as a young man competing back home in Australia. Since then, every single ounce of my energy has been spent on achieving them.
Never, in my wildest dreams, did I think it would be such a roller coaster of a ride. I have been hit by a brick to the face at every turn. Looking back, it has formed who I am today. It was at about 17 years old I decided to become a no matter what person, I was going to make my dreams come true…..NO MATTER WHAT!!
Setbacks and diversions from my plan have come at every turn but prepared me for the ultimate stage.
My goals have and always will be to compete in and win the ultimate prizes in Bass fishing “The Bassmaster Classic” and “Bassmaster Angler of the Year”. The sheer thought of driving through that stadium with my family and friends in the crowd and my song cranked up send chills through my body and has had me fighting back tears since a teenager. There are not many things in this life that will do that to me.
Although there have been some recent shake ups in the tournament bass fishing world, one thing will remain and that is the Bassmaster Classic is the biggest stage in fishing.
I refuse to be a person who will give up a life long dream.
I have earned my re-qualification at the @bass_nation Elites and I intend to make the most of it.
I can’t thank @flwfishing enough for an amazing few years and allowing me to compete and grow as a person and angler!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me over this incredible journey. I feel like it’s just getting started, lets make 2019 the most exciting one yet!!
