My name is Sean – OnTrack Fishing is my site. I’ve been fortunate enough to catch bass in the States, barramundi in Australia, trout, and carp on the Danube delta.
If I’m not fishing, or talking about fishing, then….I’m probably asleep.
While I’ve caught plenty of fish I’ve also been washed off the rocks, launched my boat without the bungs, put trebles through my fingers and kicked entire tackle boxes into the water.
I’d not change any of these moments and mishaps for all the tea in China.
This is how I learned the sport/art of fishing and these are the stories, and the knowledge, that I’ll pass on to my kids.
A day on the water in foul weather catching nothing has always beaten a day at the office.
Fortunately, I’ve listened to everything the wise old anglers told me. I now avoid the foul weather (usually), and rarely come home empty-handed.
Who Is OnTrack Fishing
By and large OnTrack fishing is a buyer’s guide for enthusiastic anglers from all walks of life, from all around the world.
At its heart, however, OnTrack fishing is much more than just a digital brochure pointing you at the latest fishing gear bargains. Our core goal is to help you catch more fish, and better fish, more often.
That’s our mission statement.
We can’t physically pull you out of bed on chili winter mornings to go and cut holes in the ice.
However, we aim to deliver the sort of inspiration that will see you motivated enough to wet a line every other day.
Our desire is to inspire you to get out on the water and chase fish as often as possible. Remember, if your line’s not wet, you’re not catching fish.
OnTrack fishing is passionate about sustainable fishing. Take a pic and let the big ones go, they’re the big breeders.
Never leave anything behind – not so much as a lolly wrapper. Adhere to the local fishing laws.
By all means, take a feed of fresh fish home to the family, this is one of the great joys of fishing.
In fact, why not forget buying seafood from the market or restaurant. You want to eat fish? Go and catch a few.
Sustainable fishing is critical to the future of our beloved sport.
Our fish stocks are stressed. It’s up to us to protect it. While the laws certainly help, it is our diligence that will ensure our grandchildren’s kids will continue to enjoy the sport that has provided us so much joy.
