Darcy grew up in Batemans Bay on the far South Coast of NSW and spent most of his life pursuing basketball. He has represented his state and country in the junior levels and continues to play basketball at a high level now. Darcy has been fortunate enough to play in the NBL for the Sydney Kings and travel around the world playing basketball in countries such as New Caledonia, China, Mongolia, Thailand, Malaysia and the USA.

Although Darcy has spent all this time dedicated to basketball his passion has now switched to fishing and the outdoors. Darcy is a self-taught fisherman, only picking up a rod within the last 4 years and has never looked back. However, he has still not put as much time into fishing as he would like due to work and basketball commitments, now is the time for him to take this passion to the next level.

We are so honored to have Darcy on our team at North Storm!

My first mission chasing trout, this beautiful rainbow was one of the 8 fish I caught that day and it’s safe to say I was hooked on trout fishing. They are just so incredible!’ – Darcy

More about Darcy

Do you have any other interests outside of basketball?

My major interest is fishing, spending time with family, friends and my dog Jax. I enjoy travelling and learning about other cultures.

Who is your idol, hero? Who inspires you the most? 

My Mum and Dad would have to be my biggest idols. They have shown me how to be selfless and have provided me with endless love and support in whatever my goals have been.  

If you could travel anywhere in Australia where would you go? And why?

I would love to head north and fish the Great Barrier Reef and the areas surrounding it. The possibilities are endless.

What motivates you each and every day?

Knowing that I’m working towards spending my days fishing.

What do you want to accomplish in your lifetime? Goals?

My short-term goal is to purchase a kayak or small boat and to really dedicate my spare time to fishing.

What do you use your North Storm gear for?

I use my North Storm gear primarily for fishing and camping. However, I have found it useful in everyday life, no more do I need to be worried about going to work and having my gear damaged from the rain.
