Will Minson has always had a passion for fishing.
The 199cm Western Bulldogs’ ruckman has a reputation as one of the game’s deep thinkers, but in many respects, he’s also a man of simple pleasures. His twitter bio reads “Australian Football, Fly Fishing, Formula 1, and Jazz”. As part of Channel 7’s @Home series – screened on Saturday nights to support the AFL Players’ official charity, Ladder – Minson shared his love of fishing, and talked about why it’s the place he feels most at home.
“The key thing, above all, is patience”, Minson says.
“I can spend a whole day fishing, and not catch a trout, and it’s still a bloody good day.”
