Not only does do it yourself – aka DIY – tackle projects save money it can be a lot of fun, too!

Some of these tackle projects are things I’ve built myself.

Where that’s the case I link to a more in-depth article. For example my DIY Fishing Trolley Project.

Others are fishing tackle projects have been done well by others.

Many of these I use, so I’ve linked to their YouTube video so you can do it too.

In most cases, you don’t need fancy tools. Just have a go. Where a tool is needed they are tools most people already have at home.

Enjoy the satisfaction of making something useful that will give you hours of useful functionality.

G'day!

I'm Dave, I live and fish in and around Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
When it comes to fishing I love going out to land-based fishing spots, heading out in the tinny (aka an Aluminum Boat) and kayak fishing.

I've been fishing since I was a teen. Beginning way back in the 1970s. It was a hobby I picked up myself as my family certainly had no interest. Making me the black sheep! My favourite fish is Flathead and Snapper. Though I'm partial to Flake (Gummy Shark) and Calamari too! While I enjoy fishing for freshwater species like Redfin and Murray Cod I prefer eating saltwater species. They're just so mouth-wateringly tasty!

I love writing about some of my favourite Melbourne Fishing Spots while fishing around Victoria. As well as the tackle I use and test.
If you see me while you're out fishing say "G' day" - I'll be the one in a bush hat.

When I'm not fishing I'm working on my websites, such as Getfished, or writing computer software (my profession.)

I try to be as accurate as possible on this website. Most of the information is based on personal experience. However, if you spot an error or think there's something that I should add - no worries! Please use the Contact Form.
