Donnie Richter, who was born in 1948 and lives near the Goulburn River, has been fishing since he was a child. Fishing for him initially began as a social activity with his friends where they would camp, drink and fish along the riverbank. Fishing practices in those times, Donnie admits, were unconcerned about sustainability - this is in complete opposition to the sustainable practices that Donnie employs today.
Nowadays Donnie is equipped with his boat and fishing gear that he uses in the various competitions that he has entered, including the Barra Nationals, the Barra Classsic, the Barra Bonanza, the Barra Bash, and the exclusive Mulwala Classic. Donnie also speaks about lure fishing and lures, his taxidermy works, and the various plants and wildlife along the river.
River Red Gum trees, turtles, platypuses, willows, bream, bardi grubs.
