Gavin Platz is an internationally recognised certified casting instructor with the Federation of Fly Fishers (one of only two in Queensland) and was the first saltwater fly fisherman in Australia to receive this distinction. He is an international guide and operates his service from his base on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.


Over the years, he  has fished in locations we all recognise and others we have never heard of, and has guided for some of the most well respected fly fishing personalities including Billy and Jodi Pate, Jack Samson and Cam Sigler.

His knowledge of salt water fly fishing is second to none. He is an exhibition fly tyer and is regularly invited to make presentations to fishing clubs, schools and corporate groups on a range of salt water fly fishing topics. He is on the G Loomis Pro-Staff team.

Pelagic species are Gavin speciality and main target species include Longtail Tuna, Mackeral Tuna, Queenfish and Golden Trevally.

The peak times to catch these awesome fish is from January to mid-May.
