You want to catch some big fish? Well then this is the guy to chat to. Hayden comes to us as an experienced charter boat deckhand from across the border. He has grown up catching Snapper, Gummy Shark, Bluefin Tuna and Mako Sharks from different locations off the Victorian coastline. Not only that, but he is a gun King George Whiting fisherman, and can’t help himself to a feed of squid from time to time. Putting his skills into play on this side of the border, he has had no trouble finding excellent fish and giving some of the best advice to the local fisherman. He’s fished around a lot of Australia chasing all sorts of species, so whether you want to chase Mako Sharks off the shelf, Spanish Mackerel over in WA on your next trip, or anything we find in our local Gulfs, Hayden is your go to man. Look out for him in years to come; he’ll be a major asset to Tackle World Adelaide and the fishing community in general.

Growing up, fishing was a large part of Andy’s life. Spending plenty of time on the far west coast with his family for long periods at a time, he was very lucky to know how easy and productive fishing can be. After completing a Business Property degree at UniSA, Andy decided that his real passion was in Information Technology, and wanted to combine this with as much fishing as possible. The best solution? Join the TWAM team and take charge of the technological side of things. Andy has caught a lot of highly desirable species. Tuna, Snapper, Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel just to name a few. He is also one of the luckiest fishermen we have ever come across. I don’t remember the last time he didn’t catch the biggest fish for the trip! You won’t see Andy on the floor amongst the aisles much, but he is the man to thank for everything you see on our website.

Fishing, fishing and more fishing. This was Tom’s life plan. After graduating from a Marketing degree at UniSA, Tom decided to open Tackle World Adelaide Metro. The long hard days paid off and now TWAM is one of the finest, most modern fishing stores in SA. Tom has covered vast areas of the globe chasing everything from Tiger Fish in Zimbabwe to hooking Trout on Fly in Scotland. His real passion however, is working the deep contours of the Southern Ocean right here in our backyard. Offshore fishing on our coast has been a huge part of satisfying Tom’s fishing needs. Although Snapper, Samson and Tuna are all high priority for Tom, he still loves getting covered in ink from local squid grounds or simply raking a few blueys up for the family over summer. A very approachable fellow, Tom can chat to customers for ages and is surely capable of helping you get that fish of a life time.
