Tackle World Fishing Stage

This year’s Tackle World Fishing Stage hosts an exciting line-up of presenters catering for everyone from beginners to the seasoned angler and those that just love to hear a fishing yarn.

Join Paul Worsteling (iFish) and David Kramer (Talking Fishing) as they introduce the experts who can take you from a beginner to a semi-pro in a few short sessions with tips on bay and bluewater fishing, fly fishing, lures, bait and tackle.  

Headlining the fishing stage is Paul Worsteling, host of Australia’s No.1 Fishing Television program IFISH TV. Paul appears on stage for three talks each day of the show and will be sharing his experiences of fishing around Australia and will be fresh back from a 6 week trip to Mexico and Alaska with a few tales to tell.

Paul will also be joined on stage by David Kramer from C31’s Talking Fishing TV program for interactive segments with the audience where the boys will give away over $1,000 worth of prizes. Paul will also be joined by a few of his mates on stage to help with squid cleaning demonstrations, tackle talk and a host of fishing yarns that cover the breadth of Australia.


Also joining the Fishing Stage this year is Steve “Starlo” Starling. Starlo has a few yarns to tell too; from his early days as a co-host of Rex Hunt Fishing Adventures to sharing his wealth of knowledge and fishing experience from all around the country.

There will be boating safety talks each day with staff from Marine Safety Victoria and presentations on new and innovative products to hit the recreational fishing market including rods, reels and accessories; many the first seen in public anywhere in Australia.
