My name is Andrew “Shorty” Hancox. I am 43 years old and I’m a disability worker.

I grew up in Bulli a small old mining town 1 hour south of Sydney. I started fishing with my dad at a young age. We mainly fish for snapper, flathead, and jew fish.

As I got older I start fishing some local comps and the passion just kept on coming. I moved over to fish in Hobie Kayaks about 10 years ago, learning each time I went out fishing.

As years went on I have become more consistent and I won my first hobie round in 2018 and backed it up with a 3rd on the gold coast last year.

I look forward to fishing in the upcoming worlds on the gold coast and meeting everyone from around the world
