News flash! This week I finally get to reveal one of my most exciting trips yet, it’s called ‘Jack’s Lap’. So what is it? Well, the guys at Bauer Trader have asked me to take their awesome new giveaway prize, ‘The Man-Pack’ on a lap around Australia. It’ll be an exploration of remote backwaters and undiscovered 4X4 tracks, while seeking out local legends and busting urban myths. I plan to leave during the tail end of this year and yep, I can almost smell the sweet silvery barramundi roasting in a banana leaf, on a remote white sandy beach in Cape York already!



A lot of the details are still under wraps at this stage, but ‘Jack’s Lap’ will be a full multimedia journey with content on every platform. I’ll be taking photographs, shooting video and writing yarns all the way around. The giveaway prize (and my home for six months) will be a ute, tray-back camper and boat. The content will be across some awesome mastheads including, Wheels, Motor, 4X4 Camper Trailer Australia, Caravan World, Trade-a-Boat and Turu – as well as my blog, www.jackmurphyfishing.com.au/apps/blog


So anyway, I’m opening it up to my blog readers to start the journey. You tell me, where would you like to see me explore? What do I need to see? Who are the local legends I need to catch up with along the way? And which urban myths should I watch out for. Finally, if you know, or manufacturer a product that you think would suit ‘Jack’s Lap’, make sure you get in touch.




Is there a fish you want me to attempt to catch? A location I should fish? A photographic challenge? You tell me. Either email fishfingers18@yahoo.com or leave a comment below.


Until next week.
