Recently I had the pleasure of speaking with Craig Radford from Western Australia, or "Noddy" as he's known by his mates and members of the fishing community. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation and hearing of Noddy's adventures in the west and where it all started for him back in the 70's. We discuss his early days in the ANSA fishing club and how he progressed from sportfishing to fly fishing, some of the early figures that helped teach him along the way and some of the incredible fisheries he's got to experience over the years, from mackerel and longtail tuna to WA dhufish and giant samson fish. Craig has spent years working out certain fisheries and techniques, in particular bombing big flies down to the depths of up to 50 metres (150ft) in search of even bigger fish. Dredging is a fishing style that I believe is under utilised in Australia and was interested in learning more about. Noddy offers up some great advice with some entertaining stories along the way. I hope you enjoyed this episode as much as I did recording, Craig is a down to earth bloke who is more than willing to pass on his years of knowledge. Enjoy!
