Ep 21 – James Dainton: Tips for Chasing Mulwala Cod and the Journey of Balista Lures
Ep 21 - Overview
In this episode I was lucky enough to interview the man behind Balista Lures, James Dainton. Now James is a genuine bloke who loves his fishing… so much so that he made it his lifelong passion. In this episode we discuss Murray Cod techniques as James shares what he has learnt over many years of targeting cod including an incredible technique for chasing giant cod in Lake Mulwala.
Then we get onto talk about the origin of Balista Lures, how it all came about and how it grew to where it is today. I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with James and I hope you enjoy this episode just as much as I did!
