Bostik Gone Fishin’ TV show  – back on air late September 2018


The second Bostik Gone Fishin’ Series for 2018, kicks off Sunday 23rd September, at 4:30pm on Three.

Gone Fishin’ was one of New Zealand’s first fishing shows, and celebrates 25 years this year. 

To celebrate this milestone, the second season for 2018 of Bostik Gone Fishin’ will includes a regular “Blast from The Past” segment which covers some of the highlights of yester year. 

A lot has changed since series one! After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) during the filming of series five, host Graeme Sinclair quickly found himself having to cope with life in a wheelchair. As they say, “Where there is a will there is a way!” 

The adventures have continued and Bostik Gone Fishin’ continues to follow great fishing stories around New Zealand. Perhaps best described as, “a slice of outdoor New Zealand which introduces viewers to great people and magnificent scenery wrapped around a series of adventures,” Bostik Gone Fishin’ celebrates the privilege that accrues through interactions with our wonderful marine environment.
