Aged 45, his connection to the raw environment is compelling. Johnny served his apprenticeship with 11 educational DVDs released during the last decade.
15 years professional guiding helped thousands of Australian and international anglers reach their fishing dreams with both impoundment and wild saltwater barramundi captures over 1300mm. Giants!
In 2015 Johnny developed the Saltwater Barramundi Masterclass training seminar and triggered barramundi anglers Australia-wide to blossom, with eager Masterclass clients stepping through the ranks to take firsts and second placings in barramundi competitions against experienced anglers.
Trained clients have landed 59 giant wild barramundi over 1200mm long.
Johnny created a learning tier for individual progression. A mix of training courses and seminars take a stepped approach, walking clients in an upward direction leaving a thirst for more.
One of Johnny’s strengths is the ability to observe and extract key information from the natural world, forming patterns and creating strategies to combat the wild. That material is powerful and forms the backbone to the ‘Wild Ways’ training content.
Experience stretches from laying in billabongs filming 100kg feral pigs half a metre away, wandering sandfly-ridden mangrove forrests, studying mud crabs, diving with tiger sharks, commercial fishing, catching fish stock for hatcheries and aquaculture, catching scrub bulls, rodeo protection, helicopter work, remote living on islands engaging in close-quarter action, plus international learnings via Apache Indians.
Our continued intention after 15 years encourages people to dream, evolve and inspire others to find the spirit of life. The team at ‘Wild Adventures’ including office assistant and outdoor girl Lee realise the value of learning.
Our objective; to teach, entertain, serve and prompt your urge to walk the tier of trust. That urge, backed with powerful knowledge should improve life and outdoor experience.
