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.
