Our Story

From Jervis Bay and beyond…….

Experience the exhilaration of our guided Sportfishing and Scenic tours as you’re surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of our pristine south coast bays, rivers, and estuaries.

From Greg Reid, Founding guide Bay and Basin Sportfishing.

“I got my first fishing rod when I was 5 years old and I still remember hooking my grandfather as I cast off the wharf at Forster on xmas holidays. That was over 40 years ago and I still get just as excited the night before another fishing experience. Now the dream has become a reality, Bay and Basin Sportfishing has been born and is now a collaboration of some of the best guides in the business”

Brett Richards

New to the team in 2015/2016 we welcome Brett Richards

Brett comes to us with a long and passionate background in sport fishing, and – in his own words – has had a very fortunate fishing life. A long career in some of NSW’s premier tackle stores, active membership in a number of fishing clubs, including a role as a founding member of the Sydney Fly Rodder’s Club, and a member of the Professional Fishing Instructors and Guides Association, Brett has fished around much of Australia for almost all of our popular sport fishing species. Additionally, Brett’s fishing experiences include Peacock Bass in the Amazon, Bonefish in Florida, Brook Trout in Tierra del Fuego, Dog Tooth in Vanuatu, and some monstrous Black Bass in Papua New Guinea.

Despite his experience with exotic species and far away locations, he still thinks of the NSW South Coast as his ‘home waters’ and he has a deep seated affinity for the largely pristine estuaries along the NSW south coast. With an inquiring mind, he is constantly developing and refining the most efficient and effective techniques for casting lures to the species that inhabit these beautiful waterways, and enjoys sharing these techniques with fellow sport fishers.
