At age 15 Scotty picked up his first fly rod while fishing for Monster Trout in privately stocked dams while visiting family friends in Ballarat, Victoria. This is where Scotty met Jim Allen, owner of Compleat Fly Fisher, Melbourne.

After this chance of meeting, Scotty went onto tie Saltwater Flies for Compleat Fly Fisher.

At 18 years of age, Scotty was guiding out of the Drysdale River in the Kimberly in a very remote location.

At the time his business was known as Drysdale Float Plane Fishing Safaris - Kununnura, Western Australia. Owned and Operated by Scotty himself.
