Peter Morse grew up in Fiji where from an early age he fished from the family boat trolling handlines for mackerel, trevally, tuna and coral trout. His father and his grandfather were fly fishermen and Peter has fly fished since the early ‘70s in freshwater and in saltwater. He has written extensively on the sport for magazines and has written three books. He is well known by most fly fishers in Australia through the Wildfish series, but has also taught fly-casting for several decades. Peter is a Sage Ambassador and RIO Ambassador as well as a Certified Master Casting Instructor with the US body Fly Fishers Intermational. He conducts fly casting and fly fishing clinics all over the country from novice level through to training other potential instructors. Without prejudice, he chases with fly tackle whatever swims and has landed over 300 species on fly tackle. He has fished around the world from the jungles of Brazil to the flats of Mexico and Florida, throughout the South Pacific, to the chalk streams of southern England. His favourite 10 species are.
In 2017 Peter was awarded the Fly Fishers International Mel Krieger Instructor of the Year Award.
There is no fly fisher that hasn’t heard of Peter Morse. He is a terrific ambassador and his extensive knowledge is shared in an easy to understand way.
