The Reel Life
Jump aboard as famed New Zealand fisherman Sam Mossman shares tales of adventure from his lifelong fishing OE. Sam takes us on many memorable fishing journeys around New Zealand and the world - Hawaii, the South Pacific Islands, Australia, the US, Canada, South America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia - exploring watery hotspots both exotic and familiar. It's a collection of stories packed with adventure, information, humour, local colour and exciting fishing experiences - Sam really has been there done that, pursuing some of the planet's most outrageous finny species in freshwater and salt. As he says himself says: 'It's a big, wide, wonderful world out there, full of amazing things to see, exotic cultures to experience, interesting people to meet and exciting new fish to catch.'
Sam Mossman, a serious fisherman for 50 years, has wet a line in most New Zealand waters, and many other parts of the world. He has written on the subject for 40 years, being published in newspapers and magazines in New Zealand, Australia, and the USA. He has eight books to his name as well as making contributions to many more – including the prestigious International Game Fish Association's yearbook World Record Game Fishes (he's held six world records himself). Sam is currently the special projects editor of NZ Fishing News.
