That was pretty easy, John Roe was famous in SEQ in the late 80's and early 90's for his passion for Saratoga. Worked at the Borumba fish hatchery while it was operating. John is now back in Tasmania hunting Trout where he started out. John was a fly fisherman 99% of the time, but played with lures for a little while when Qlders couldn't get the hang of the fly rod.
This is his Bass model and if I have a good look there's a Cod model somewhere as well.
