About FishingMad & it’s community

FishingMad was founded in 2016 by Alan Bonnici a mad fisherman with a growing following around Melbourne and Victoria. Alan is an author for the Fishing Monthly Magazine and proudly sponsored by Savage Gear Australia. He has featured in fishing documentaries, local fishing campaigns and is heavily involved in kids fishing programs, family fishing clinics and charities across Victoria. FishingMad is a way of following Alan’s fishing adventures, getting some expert fishing tips and connecting with other local anglers within a friendly and welcoming community we know as FishingMad.

FishingMad provides general fishing advice, fishing reports from around Melbourne and Victoria, location suggestions, road-testing the latest rods, reels, and accessories, & providing instructional multimedia in a friendly community based atmosphere. We have something for anglers of all different abilities.

So please get behind us. We connect people through the joy of fishing and welcome you to participate in our events, competitions & to provide your own reports, product reviews, multimedia, and content to be shared with others on the website and social media pages.
