Richard Pillans Featured interview
Our Australian Mackerel hunting expert for Month of Mackerel, Richard Pillans is a devoted Mackerel hunting specialist who loves nothing more than seeing his reel emptied by a hard running Spaniard. He is a self confessed “cranky old bastard” that hates to see a school of Mackerel spooked by long shots and bad shooting. When Richard isn’t searching out Spaniards he works as a marine biologist who some would say is living the dream and is currently studying populations of tropical sawfish in North Queensland. In this episode Richard gives us his spanish mackerel tips on approaching mackerel, how to spook them and the setup you need to get shooting Mackerel.
