New Zealand's A to Z - fishing

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:25 pm on 13 November 2014

Fishing and collecting seafood are among New Zealand's most popular recreational activities and important parts of our way of life. A quarter of adult New Zealanders go fishing, whether they're angling for trout, surfcasting at the beach, netting whitebait or fishing from a boat. On today's programme we have roughly divided the subject up into three broad categories of recreational fishing: for trout, inshore saltwater species and offshore big game fish. Featuring: Trout fishing guide, Lindsay Lyons. Rotorua. Fishing tackle developer, Paul Barnes. Auckland. Gamefishing skipper, Bruce Smith. Bay of Islands.
