Don’t let his age fool you – this guy has more experience than most fisherman three times his age! Kyle has a serious passion for fishing, and he can pretty much find any species land based in South Australia. His favourite method though is heading to the Far West Coast of SA and catching (and releasing) as many monster Mulloway as he can in between work. Kyle also spends his days off at Yorke Peninsula beaches where he’ll throw lures for big Flathead, giant Australian Salmon, and dominate the Squid from every jetty as he goes. Kyle is in charge of our Website and Social Media here at Tackle World Adelaide Metro, and prides himself of exceptional service and friendliness.

Matt brings some special skills to Tackle World Adelaide Metro, not all related to catching fish above the water line! He loves getting in to the water and submerging into the depths to search for Abalone and Crayfish, or getting the spear gun out and getting a feed of fish. Matt is also the President of the Flinders University Underwater Club, so you can be assured he knows his stuff! However Matt doesn’t just get his fish from under the water, but on top of it too. He loves chasing Southern Bluefin Tuna down off Cape Jervis, bottom bashing for a few Snapper and Nannygui out in Backstairs Passage, or chasing thumper KG Whiting on the inshore grounds.

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 the finest, most modern fishing store 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.
