Johnny Mitchell is a rare breed of fisherman. He is very humble, does not seek fishing fame even though in my opinion is one of the best all round fishermen in this country. Johnny is well spoken, polite and when he speaks you instantly recognise the intelligence and intense passion for his craft. He is also a proficient teacher who clearly explains the details, making them easy to digest. He understands fish and the environment they live in like nobody else I’ve ever read in magazines, met or have seen on television. The lessons I’ve learnt from him over the past seven years have improved my fishing tenfold. Most of my greatest fishing captures have come since I have known Johnny…..the reasons are obvious.
