  • Ep 60 – Steve ‘Starlo’ Starling: Fishing, Life & How the Fishing Industry has Changed Over 50 Years

Steve Starling (more commonly known as Starlo) is one of the most recognised faces in the Australian fishing industry and I feel privileged to welcome him back onto the podcast for another episode. If you haven’t already, go listen to Ep 8 of the podcast to hear our first catchup over 2.5 years ago. A lot has changed since then, and these changes have impacted the way Starlo fishes today.

In this episode we start off with a catchup on what’s been happening in Starlos life and what styles of fishing he has been enjoying of late, before falling into a discussion on fish feeding behaviour, which is quite interesting. The main topic of conversation for this episode is all around how the fishing industry has changed in the 50 plus years that Starlo has been fishing. He shares plenty of stories from the 1970s, 80s and 90s all the way into the 2000’s. We talk about the changes in gear and tackle, to lures and electronics, as well as the how the availability of information has drastically changed.

I want to thank Starlo once again for the chat, and I hope you learn plenty from this episode just like I did. Enjoy!
