Fishing and Adventure - Scott Parry & Mig Rumney
The concept for Fishing & Adventure was developed by cousins Scott Parry and Michael (Mig) Rumney back in 2011 whilst fishing out from Raglan one day after work.
The boys' saw a gap in the market for a fresh new approach with the two of them at the helm. Being cousins (and at the time workmates), Scott and Mig had the natural banter that is synonymous with kiwi blokes all over the country and felt they had what it takes to bring an injection of youth and adventure to the fishing show scene.
An Idea is one thing but putting it into action is a whole new kettle of fish. The boys didn't know the first thing about putting together a television show but were determined to make it happen. After a lot of hard work, being told no multiple times and steep learning curves, Fishing and Adventure made it's debut 10 episode season in February 2013.
Since then the show has gone from strength to strength and Fishing & Adventure is now NZ's top fishing show. Seasons 1-4 were broadcast on Prime TV and Sky Sport NZ and now the boys have landed a spot on the countries top channel TVNZ One. The show is also available online through TVNZ on Demand.
Fishing & Adventure combines top class fishing with a down to earth grass roots attitude that resonates with viewers of all demographics. It's the perfect balance between entertainment and education.
