Maori fishing guru sells boat

7:03 pm on 26 March 2013

The man behind the Maori Fishing Calendar is selling his boat.

Bill Hohepa is considered by some to be a fishing guru - producing guides on the best days to get catch.

After giving up running charters for recreational fishers a few years ago, he put the boat in his shed - saying compliance rules and red tape forced him out of the water.

But he's now selling his Marco 650 and will spend more time working on television programmes about trucks.

Mr Hohepa is reassuring his fans that he will continue to publish the Maori Fishing Calendar.
