Most grateful to Marlin Magazine to be included in the article!
The marlin photograph that is included from me is the photograph that I call Splash and is available for sale on this website here.
This is one of my favourite images of all time. Luke and I both grew up fishing the light tackle grounds off Townsville at Cape Bowling Green. My father Jim worked with the Australian Marine Institute to begin what is the tagging and research program that continues today. Luke the Townsville Tournament out of a tinny with his father John and brother Mathew and caught the very first marlin ever in a Townsville tournament as a junior angler.
Needless to say I love light tackle black marlin fishing. And I love catching (and releasing!) these little fish. But of course I love taking their pics.
