A new se­ries – spoiled

With the new se­ries of The ITM Fish­ing Show about to grace our screens from June 11, we have been flat out in the edit­ing suite, spoilt for choice, as this se­ries prom­ises to de­liver some­thing for ev­ery­one above and below the wa­ter­line.

NZ Fishing News - - The ITM Fishing Show -

This sees us: fish­ing and free-div­ing around the NZ fish­ing Mecca the Three Kings Is­lands in our new Stab­i­craft 2750CC; hunt­ing and div­ing the rugged South Is­land; and fish­ing the Bay of Is­lands with Richie Mccaw and his bud­dies. We also throw some ex­otic over­seas lo­ca­tions into the mix, in­clud­ing: chas­ing blue mar­lin in Cape Verde; kayak fish­ing the atolls in Tahiti; and vis­it­ing amaz­ing Principe Is­land in West Africa – just a frac­tion of what NZ’S favourite TV show has on of­fer. We’re all ex­cited and can’t wait to share these ad­ven­tures with you…

Matt and the crew have been in the Bay of Plenty re­cently, catch­ing up and fish­ing with lo­cal leg­end Bryce Din­neen. Bryce, a su­per-keen fish­er­man, dived into shal­low wa­ter break­ing his C2, C3, C5 and C6 ver­te­brae and ir­repara­bly dam­ag­ing his spinal cord in early 2007 at the age of 29. Af­ter a year of re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion he was fi­nally dis­charged. This in­ci­dent boosted his de­ter­mi­na­tion to help

Bat­tling the el­e­ments pays off for Matt, lead­ing to the cap­ture of this nice Three Kings trevally.

Bryce and Matt pre­pare for a big day on the wa­ter. Matt en­coun­tered some in­ter­est­ing toothy crit­ters while kayak fish­ing in Tahiti.
