Team Thailand

Name: Adrian Baguley

FROM: Chonburi, Thailand

Age: 35

Worlds Experience: 2011, 2012

Adrian has been fishing since the age of six and went to Thailand to join Blue Seas Marine 8 years ago. As a director in Blue Seas Marine (Hobie agents for SE Asia), Adrian heads up the kayak fishing division and is responsible for developing the sport throughout the region. Although, having only a little over 3 years' experience in kayak fishing he has been able to use the skills learned over many years, and different fishing environments, to quickly master the best techniques for fishing both freshwater and saltwater species. He is currently out kayak fishing at least 20hrs every week to prepare for the coming event in the USA and is looking forward to meeting the Aussie experts who helped him to master bream fishing techniques at the 1st Daiwa Hobie Fishing Worlds.

Bass fishing in freshwater is going to be a challenge for Adrian in the lakes of Texas but if he learns as quickly as he did in Australia, where he took a full bag on day one, and this time has a bit of luck thrown in, Adrian could surprise quite a few of the American Bass fishing experts.
