Nato has his fly rod rigged and ready before the boat even hits the water. The first half of the day will be spent trying to get a fish to eat a fly. After that the boys are heading wide to some deep water pins to drop big live baits 100 meters plus down on one of Nato’s crazy deep water rigs.

Milan is doing what Milan does and what he loves most, that being, swimming big live baits on the weed lines close to shore. Hopefully a big hungry king fish has chosen the same weed lines to hunt down breakfast.

The boys have been invited to go land based fishing on the east coast of New Zealand by Hamish from NaCL Lures. They had a very similar trip with Hamish last year and it was good fun and some beautiful fish were landed. Hamish believes February to be a great time of year to be on the rocks targeting big kingfish, which suits Milan perfectly. Nato really enjoys trying to capture beautiful scenery in amongst the fishing and this is a great place to do just that. As always a good feed of fresh fish is on the hit list and everyone involved is hopeful that the mighty Green Machine makes an appearance.

The very first fishing mission for 2022 is gonna be a land based fishing mission on New Zealand’s Wild West coast. Milan has some very good family friends that have farmed a beautiful piece of coast line for generations. Milan is lucky enough to have permission to enjoy this amazingly beautiful slice of paradise. Brother Toby is tagging along for this one and as always the boys have there sights set on catching something to eat. It’s been 6 weeks since the boys have had fresh fish to eat and as always that is the main goal but, Milan ends up landing the biggest Snapper he has ever caught in his life after it eats a bait off the surface right before his very eyes.
