Matt and Nick Wells - The Wells Brothers

Wilson Fishing

For the better part of two and a half decades, The Wells Brothers, Matt and Nick have been prospecting every inch of water they possibly can.

Being born into a family that was strongly involved in fishing, the pair has held an everlasting passion for the sport in which they were born and raised.

The roots of their beloved sport originated in the Manilla area with Nick as a young child in the late 80's and later on to Matt in the early 90's. With amazing fisheries in close proximity including Split Rock Dam, Keepit Dam and Chaffey Dam, the boys had awesome fishing opportunities at their fingertips. With a decade of non stop fishing almost every weekend and anywhere else they could squeeze in between, the mid 2000's saw the boys take a more serious approach to the sport and branch out to bigger and better things. Years of travelling to the mighty Murray River to catch up with Rod Mackenzie, boosted their confidence and knowledge for targeting big Murray Cod. Rod is renowned as Australia's foremost authority when it comes to large Murray Cod.

The next big step was heading north to the Impoundment Barra Heaven "Lake Awoonga". It was here that the boys bumped in to another authority in the Australian fishing scene, Rod 'Harro' Harrison. Matt and Nick formed a great bond with Rod and under Harro's legendary tuition, the boys formed another major passion for these great sport fish. After several years of success at Lake Awoonga, the boys were forced to head further north after the massive downturn in the fishery after the 2011 floods. Since then Matt and Nick have found themselves regularly visiting Lake Proserpine and Kinchant Dams in the Whitsunday areas.
