Hi I'm Ryan Moody,

Fishing guide, online fishing course creator, optimist and passionate Aussie, dedicated to helping you become the angler you really want to be, catching big fish... consistently.

Fish smarter not harder!


My work [and this site] is devoted to sharing 30 years of fishing experience and insights, to help you become a better angler.


After more than 2000 massive metre plus saltwater barra, metre plus threadfin, thousand pound marlin and too many coral trout to count, I reckon I've learned a thing or two.


Even a decade ago I would never have considered sharing my hard earned secrets. But today, with the popularity of catch and release, and my mate dying of sun cancer, I knew it was time to get out of the sun.


Our first online fishing course Barra Basics  has been so successful, and I've had such fun sharing information normally held so close to my chest. Watching the transformation as anglers put my techniques into practice and start catching quality fish is priceless!

"I've fished for big barramundi from the Cape to the Northern Territory for the past nine years on my TV show Fishin' Trip with no success on the magical metre mark. However that all changed when we teamed up with Ryan Moody. We spent only one day with Ryan and we cracked the magical metre mark 3 times! We thank you Ryan for your knowledge, patience and support. You make dreams come true!" 

Jason Kennedy, Fishin Trip Presenter
