What can Barra Basics do for you?

Getting more barra to your boat requires a good understanding of where fish will be at any given time. Without a road map or guidance, progress can be slow and frustrating. Catching fish consistently in any location or period requires the big picture. Barra Basics can fast track your knowledge saving you years of trial and error.

“We finally got to get out on the water with the kids on a fish/camp trip and apply many of Ryan’s insights….end result the kids got their first legal barra’s and dad caught and released a nice barra (103cm).”

Bevan Reeve

Well, my mate asked if it was worth going fishing this arvo/evening… I checked out the framework and said we should catch something so why not. We ended with 5 Barra’s and my mate got his PB 110cm!”

Bevan Reeve Barra Basics Graduate
Chris Long

Definitely glad I did this! Once again thanks Ryan and Karen for a great course! Definitely seeing big improvements in consistency already. I managed to land 5 Barra over two days on Friday and Saturday. All tagged and released  Both days only having to spend a few hours at a time on the water, using the framework to be in the right place at the right time.”

Chris Long Barra Basics Graduate
Steve Nuttall

“Three metre barra, this one 126cm and lost another 10 or so in the one session. Forget everything you used to know about fishing for barra and just follow the framework”

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 your support. You make dreams come true!”
