Your Guide.
General tackle junkie.

I grew up in the Coffs Harbour region and have a passion for light tackle lure & fly fishing in the many local estuaries & rivers. Im just as keen to go chasing Bream & Whiting on the flats as I am to hitch up and head west to Cod country for a multi day trip.
Ive spent about a decade and a half in the tackle industry and have over 20 years experience fishing and exploring our local area, so feel free to get in touch for a trip or even just to check in on how the fishings been!



Speed Freak.
The hardest working team member.

Mirag’in is a custom 5.4m Stessco Mirage, powered by a 175hp Suzuki 4 stroke. It is fast, fun and most of all stable & safe. It allows us to travel between spots quickly and comfortably to maximise fishing time, and has plenty of space for flicking lures or casting a fly. Mirag’in is authorised to operate in class 2E/2D for up to 4 Passengers & has┬áthe latest electronics from Lowrance and Minn Kota to help you fish as effectively as possible.
