Skipper - Scott

 

I grew up in Porthleven, a remote fishing village in the southwest of England and was immersed in everything to do with the ocean.  My father was a commercial fisherman and diver so I guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree.  I emigrated to NZ having travelled through the Pacific Islands and Australia over 20 years ago.  NZ became my choice of country due to the exceptional quality of the fishing and of course the culture that's all about the great outdoors.  I have been fortunate enough to have fished alongside some of the top guides and skippers of NZ.  These people have helped turn my passion into my occupation.  My goal in life is to share fantastic fishing experiences with likeminded people who respect our incredible fishery.

See you out there!

Skipper - Sam (green shirt)

New Zealand has always been my home at heart and I am fascinated by it's beautiful and dynamic marine environment.  My grandfather had a true passion and love for fishing, which was passed on down to me. I have participated in many fishing disciplines, but I can say with confidence that saltwater fishing is my true calling. I am very lucky that I am able to make a career out of fishing and I'm always eager to learn and develop myself as an angler and skipper. I know that exact feeling of being alive when you catch a fish of a lifetime. This is what I want to share with people in a manner that also maintains a healthy fishery for the future.
