Dave Bradley has drawn his guiding experience from many years of fishing with some of northern Australia’s finest anglers in the north’s premier locations as well as guiding areas all over Queensland, north into PNG and numerous extended trips across the Pacific and the Carribean.

Guiding since '97, Dave is passionate about and feels right at home in shallow water targeting and sight fishing his favourite species. He has shown his passion for shallow water by being the only guide in the country to operate a purpose built poling boat, a Maverick 18 HPX.
Experiences drawn from years of guiding clients in a multitude of waters, both inshore flats and offshore puts Dave in front of the crowds.
Searching for new waters and improving techniques and doing it with a casual yet professional attitude is his approach to guiding.
