Mark lives at Relbia near Launceston, Tasmania and caught his first trout on a dry red tag fly on the St Patricks River at the age of 14 and has been hooked ever since. Favourite spots are the Cowpaddock and Lillies sections of Arthurs Lake and Little Pine Lagoon at dun time both situated in the Central Highlands of Tasmania.
He enjoys fishing the many rivers near home including the Liffey, St Patricks, Meander, Mersey, North and South Esk. He has fished for Australian Teams in Rotorua, Drymen and the Isle of Islay, Scotland.
Happily married to Genevieve and has two lovely daughters, Amelia (19) and Charlotte (16), with lots of netball and equestrian.
