George’s Big Experiment In Performance, Life and Legacy

A FISHERMAN’S STORY - This episode’s guest is one of the best known fishermen in Australia, Mr Ron Gallo.

Born in 1937, Ron has spent the major part of his life fishing and working in the fishing industry up in the northern parts of Australia around Cairns. 

His passion for fishing seems to have never waned. His desire for quality equipment led him to start making his own lures years ago, in addition to other fishing equipment. He got so good at this that he is now quite famous for those hand crafted products.

They are highly sought after by people in the know and getting much harder to come by. So much so that many now sit in collections.

Unfortunately these types of skills, driven by passion and a desire for quality, are going by the wayside as people buy more and more cheaply manufactured items. But that’s the way it is today. 

Given Ron’s passion and tireless dedication to his craft, George always wanted to have this chat and learn the story behind Ron and his love of fishing.
