Tim Stenlake aka ‘Timmy Turtle’

Meet North Storm brand ambassador Tim Stenlake.

Tim Stenlake better known to most in Australia as ‘Timmy Turtle’.

Tim is an avid fisherman, hunter and genuine outdoorsman. He is a self-taught fisherman and adventurer who lives and travels Australia on the road with his dog / legendary sidekick – ‘Millie.

In 2016 Tim started filming his fishing trips in local creeks, rivers and canals around the Southern Gold Coast / Northern NSW area and now showcases his amazing video adventures on YouTube.

Tim started out with a goal to show people you do not need a lot money to have a great time out on the water and live an interesting, full and adventurous life. Tim builds his own custom skiffs and sells the plans to help others build affordable watercraft to take out and enjoy the outdoors and fishing lifestyle.

Last year Tim made headline news when he took it upon himself to clear abandoned crab pots from Beelbi Creek near Hervey Bay that were damaging to the local waterways and marine life. Check out the story on his YouTube Channel.

We have and do enjoy watching Tim grow as a fisherman and share his triumphs and travels with us. He is an inspiration to those with a dream to quit their day job and live the life they choose. He works hard and plays hard, we are so stoked to have him on our team!

More about Tim

Do you have any other interests outside of fishing and camping?

Recently just got into hunting and will probably pursue that more. I also enjoy filming and editing.

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

Anyone who dedicates their life to something and pushes through to become successful inspires me – it doesn’t matter what field.

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

Would love to make it to Arnhem Land. Heard it is absolutely amazing up there for fishing and hunting and is pretty much untouched. Most things there are done by traditional methods and I would love to learn everything I can.

What motivates you each and every day?

Having a goal to own my own massive property in a good location that I can come back to when I’m not traveling.

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

Raise good kids and teach them everything I learn on my journey.

What do you use your North Storm gear for?

I use my North Storm backpack for storing camera gear and tackle in. It’s my go to bag while fishing off the rocks, up creeks or in boats.
