Cameron McGregor
B. Environmental Management and Ecology (La Trobe University), PFIGA Fishing Guide

Cameron was practically raised on the rivers' banks, and it has been his playground for most of his life. His passion for fishing has transferred into a love of all things to do with rivers and their inhabitants. He has fished for Australian natives all his life. Cameron learnt to fly fish at the age of 12, which fuelled his early interest in entomology and fly tying. During his time at university he studied macroinvertebrates and Australian native fish species such as galaxids. His research interests led him to various positions for both New South Wales and Victorian fisheries departments. Here he researched native fish species such as Murray cod, trout cod and golden perch, invasive species such as carp, and sport fish such as brown and rainbow trout. His research and personal interests have allowed Cameron to accumulate an extensive knowledge of Australia’s freshwater ecosystems, particularly in the Murray-Darling Basin. Some of Cameron’s achievements to date include the discovery of a remnant population of olive perchlets in the Lachlan River and a new species of Coloburiscoides mayfly in the Murrumbidgee River. Cameron, together with Katie, also researched a remnant population of southern pygmy perch in the Ovens River catchment, of which have now not been seen for several years. Cameron is a highly competent angler and instructor with much experience fishing around Australia and abroad.

Katie Doyle

B.Science (Hons, First Class)(Sydney University), Post.Grad.Dip River Restoration and Water Policy Management (Charles Sturt University), PhD Freshwater Ecology (University of Queensland)

Katie has been enthusiastic about nature all her life. This passion led her to study biological science at university, and then to specialise in her post graduate career in freshwater ecology and the management of marine and freshwater resources. Katie has recently completed her PhD on the management of invasive common carp (Cyprinus carpio) in the Murray-Darling Basin (supported by the University of Queensland and the Invasive Animals Co-operative Research Centre (IACRC)). Part of this research involved detailed studies on the diet and habitat preferences of native percichthyid fishes including Murray cod, golden perch and Australian bass. Her aquatic-based research has taken her to places such as Thailand, the South Pacific and throughout Australia. Throughout her lifetime, including her travels, experiences and university career, Katie has gained an intimate knowledge of fauna in both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and has a deep appreciation of Australia’s native fauna species. She aims to communicate current scientific research to the general public in an enjoyable way in the hope to maintain and protect freshwater resources and the life they support.

Kyle Dalrymple

Kyle has grown up fishing the Murray River and surrounding areas targeting mostly Murray cod and golden perch. Kyle is also a competant fly angler for trout. His instagram name, @kylefishlots says it all – he loves to fish, lots! Kyle regularly competes in fishing tournaments targeting Murray cod. Kyle’s true speciality is fishing Lake Mulwala with both lure and fly. He knows every snag and piece of fish holding structure and knows how to fish the lake at all stages of the Murray cod season. Kyle regularly and consistently lands Murray cod when he heads out, and has landed a few ‘Murray pounders’ (1m + fish) in his time. Kyle is a member of the Outcast Fishing Crew and is sponsored by Gangster Spinnerbaits. Kyle won the 2016 Champion Angler at the Lake Mulwala Classic Invitational Fishing Competition and was a member of the Champion Team.
