Ben's earliest fishing memory goes back to his early years walking this planet where he would venture out with his father and sister to catch anything that would bite a hook. From this a very strong passion for fishing was born. 

At the age of 10 Ben was introduced to trout fishing by his uncle and the passion grew even stronger from there. Over the next 19 years Ben has fish many different locations around the South Island of New Zealand and has focused his attention on the Mackenzie Country canal system where Trout of truly gigantic proportions live.

Ben also writes articles for the New Zealand Fishing Paper each month where he delivers an informative exciting account of his fishing trips.
