Our Angling-Obsessed Team

Robert Millar – Proud owner of The Salted Angler

Robert Millar

Robert grew up on the Gold Coast in Australia, where spear fishing and saltwater fishing are part of the culture. After school, while his friends were busy on their skateboards and BMX bikes, Robert was down at the beach fishing for bream, flathead and whiting with his long beach rod. He even competed in fishing and diving competitions, and won the city’s foremost skin diving competition when he was just 17 years of age. Rob still gets down to the beach to fish for dinner whenever he’s back in Australia, but mostly just prefers to help the expert fishermen at the Salted Anger from his home in Japan. 

Why am I giving advice on the Salted Angler? 

Like the seasoned anglers on this site, I was an avid fisherman as a boy and grew up consuming everything I could get my hands on about catching that next great fish.

Now I own what I believe is the foremost website in the world in the fishing niche where our team actually tests the gear and catches fish and reports back to our readers, unlike other sites which just report on other people’s information. We test, we fish, we know.

What was the first fish you ever caught? 

A casting net full of sea mullet! My dad was a builder who built a retaining wall out of brick and concrete to protect our house from the rising tides in our canal. The mullet became groggy from the concrete dust, and swam way to close to the shore. So I went to the local camping store, spent my pocket money on a casting net, and caught them all! Of course, we couldn’t eat them… 

What got you interested in fishing?

My Grandpa. He had a small 18-foot dinghy with a 15Hp Mercury outboard motor on the back and we’d go out into the Broadwater on the weekends and he’d teach me the craft. Best days of my life.

What’s the biggest fish you’ve ever caught?

I once caught a shovel-nosed shark at Tangalooma off the Queensland North Coast in Australia. It took me over an hour to land because every time I got him close to the shore he’d thrash away into the deeper waters again with the drag on my reel screaming in protest! When I finally landed him, I released him back into the water. He was such a worthy opponent, it seemed only right.  

What’s one tip you would give to anyone who’s going to go saltwater fishing for the first time? 

For saltwater fishing, hire an expert. There are just too many variables, and you can easily end up disappointed or even in danger. For freshwater fishing, others may disagree but I reckon just get out there and experiment.

Coty Perry – Our Lead Professional Fisherman

Coty grew up in a family of fishermen, so he didn’t have much of a choice when it came to learning how to fish. And since fishing runs in his blood, he’s fallen in love with it. He even turns to fish to relax after a hard day of fishing. He loves the thrill he gets from a big catch. He’s always looking to beat his personal best record and help other people get addicted to fishing like the way he is!

Why am I giving advice on the Salted Angler? 

I want to help anglers who weren’t lucky enough to grow up as a generational fishermen. Fishing can sometimes be intimidating, but you shouldn’t have to worry about looking “dumb” or embarrassing yourself. I want my how-to guides and gear reviews to guide you and walk you through the process of becoming a better angler. 

What was the first fish you ever caught? 

Oh boy, I can remember catching nothing but pickerel for my years fishing some of the muddiest ponds in Northeastern PA. I’m going to say pickerel was the first fish. 

What got you interested in fishing?

It wasn’t a choice. My grandfather and dad basically said, “we’re going fishing.” I’d go out on the boat with my Gameboy but after a while, I took an interest. Two decades later and I’ve made it my career. 

What’s the biggest fish you’ve ever caught?

I caught a 35lb muskie trolling back to the dock to wrap it up for the day about 10 years ago. It was at a place called Prompton Dam about 20 miles outside of Scranton PA. 

What’s one tip you would give to anyone who’s going to go saltwater fishing for the first time? 

Get a charter. If you’ve never been offshore fishing before or even canal fishing, you need a charter because very few people can pick up a conventional rod and 30lb braid and actually be able to manage it. You need someone to help you and charters know the ins and out of offshore fishing.

David Borgogni – Saltwater Gear Expert

Why am I giving advice on the Salted Angler?

Fishing has been a part of my life since childhood, and over the years, it became a hobby, something I do to recharge my batteries. Being a contributing writer at the Salted Angler allowed me to combine the two things I love the most in life, fishing, and writing. It also gave me an opportunity to be a part of a community that cares about fishing as much as I do. 

What was the first fish you ever caught?

The first fish I ever caught was a carp. 

What got you interested in fishing?

My dad used to take me fishing most weekends when I was a kid. He would often speak about fishing rods he saw at the local fishing store or baits he wanted to try out. As I grew older, fishing became a passion we shared.



What’s the biggest fish you’ve ever caught?

I once caught a 5-foot-long Atlantic cod that weighed over 50lbs.

What’s one tip you would give to anyone who’s going to go saltwater fishing for the first time?

Never take your eyes off an active rod. Fish can bite at any moment.
