‘The Leopard Trail’ is the growing enterprise of Australian fishing and nature specialist Johnny Mitchell.

Aged 47, his connection to the raw environment is compelling. Johnny served his apprenticeship with 11 educational DVDs released during the last 20 years.

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.

It soon took over.

Results now dominate – The Leopard Trail responsible for clients winning nearly 70% of barra tournaments in QLD. 

Trained clients have landed 78 giant saltwater barramundi over 1200mm long.

Johnny created an epic learning tier for individual progression framed of Africa’s ultimate predator, the Leopard.

A mix of training courses and seminars take a stepped approach, walking clients toward understanding the dynamic ways of the wild.

In a way never described before – something you can’t afford to miss if wanting to truly connect to the wild.

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 Leopard Trail.’

Experience stretches from laying in billabongs filming 100kg feral pigs half a metre away, wandering sandfly-ridden mangrove forests, studying mud crabs, diving with tiger sharks, commercial fishing, catching fish stock for hatcheries and aquaculture, rodeo bull rider protection, remote living on islands, plus international learnings via Apache Indians.

We encourage people to dream, evolve and inspire others to find the spirit of life.

The team behind ‘The Leopard Trail’ including office assistant and outdoor girl Lee realise the value of learning.

Our objective; to teach and prompt your urge to walk the wild pathway. That urge, backed with powerful knowledge improves life and outdoor experience.

“Climb the Learning Tier, the View is Worthy!”
