Mark’s obsession with fishing began at an early age. Spending 3 months of each year at Cape Vidal as well as countless fishing sessions off of St. Lucia, it didn’t take long for him to learn the ins and outs of saltwater fishing. His time boarding in the Midlands allowed him to master his freshwater game and under the watchful eye and guidance of his grandfather he has grown into an incredibly skilled and knowledgeable fisherman.
After leaving school Mark studied Photography and Design – IMM Marketing and, shortly after this, he worked for three years on super yachts as second mate and sports fishing captain in 38 different countries around the world, learning invaluable lessons worldwide.
Upon his return to South Africa, ESA was born and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. Since then he has presented and produced in excess of 500 fishing programs to date including ESA, Freespool Angling and Reel Africa TV. Mark is currently working on some exciting new projects.
