Hooked on Adventure - Australia's Best Fishing Spots
by Steve Starling

Published June 2005.

“Blue salmon smacked mullet high into the air and great, fat, burnished silver barramundi boofed anything they wanted to boof – including the salmon. This place was electric.”

One of Australia’s most recognised and respected fishing experts, Steve Starling and his good mate Bushy have produced three TV series of Hooked on Adventure.

The highlights are presented in this book – a selection of Starlo’s favourite hot spots. Now you can share his experiences as he travels to some of Australia’s most breathtaking locations and tells his story of spectacular angling and adventures along the way.


“My real aim in writing this book is to start you thinking about that next big fishing
holiday; to pique your interest concerning new places worthy of exploration, or to remind you of old, familiar ones you may have forgotten.”

Join Starlo as he recounts his breathtaking journeys: those special fish landed (or lost) along the way, magical moments experienced and the difficult challenges he had to overcome.

From teasing orange-speckled saratoga in the Top End wetland to chasing barramundi in Western Cape York, it’s all narrated in Starlo’s trademark laidback style, providing many laughs and several nail-biting moments.
