Garry Norton has been a part of our Tackle World team here for just under a year but in his short time he has made a massive imprint on the rest of our team and also our customers. Garry made the transfer from being a painter this time last year when he realized that fishing was where his passion lays. Prior to working here at Cranbourne, Garry was a very regular customer who was very keen on his fishing, so we knew when he started that he would fit right in!
Gaz is an advocate for fresh water fishing, chasing trout is one of his all time passions and he has had many years of experience doing it. Gaz owns a Hobie kayak which definitely sees a lot of water and a lot more fish during the warmer months, the stealth approach to fishing is something Garry takes into account and he loves ambushing those predatory fish! Along with his kayak, Gaz owns a great little tinny which is set up perfectly for lake trolling which of late has produced some lovely Murray cod from Eildon. You may have seen Gaz all over our fishing report the last few months, especially in regards to Devilbend Reservoir where a lot of people struggle to pull fish out of but Gaz has figured it out and always seems to bring home a beauty.
Garry looks after the stockings of our rods here at Cranbourne and he ensures that our racks are always full! Garry is highly regarded for his fantastic customer service, he doesn’t just serve our customers, he befriends them and makes sure they are going fishing with the right knowledge and gear.
Next time you pop into the shop, stop and have a chat with Gaz, whether it is freshwater or salt, he will put you onto the fish!
