  • Ep 44 – Simon Pender: Tips for Small Water Australian Bass

In this episode I’m joined by keen angler Simon Pender! He loves both salt and fresh and spends a fair portion of his time walking small streams chasing Australian Bass. Simon is a rep for Pure Fishing, and he lives and breathes fishing. In this episode he shares plenty of his knowledge on chasing Bass along the south eastern corner of Australia. We talk about the key locations for Bass south of Sydney, the go-to lures, gear and setups, leader and the approach for fishing small creeks and streams. This is a must listen for all freshwater enthusiasts.
