Heading north of the Cape York Penisula, we find some remote areas of the Great Barrier Reef, and sample the amazing fishing on offer. Along the journey we investigate why the reef is such an important Wonder-of-the-World; we also highlight some of its major threats.
Today we put a fishing journalist to the test: he gets one day to prove he can catch NSW luderick using an artificial technique he has written about in magazines. The team then heads to the New Zealand South Island to target trout in fast flowing rivers.
Today starts on a deserted tropical island with only a box of lures and a challenge to survive! To help us catch fish, we use the help of some touring Texan anglers. Then we target Murray cod in NSW and conduct an on-water job interview at the same time!
The AFN team joins Tom Tierney in South Australia, and see if we can spot a salmon or two. Then later, we head to NSW to join rock and beach guide Alex Bellissimo, as we fish beach worms for whiting on Manly Beach.
Bass guru Jason Ehrlich shows us some of his favourite techniques before we head to the sands of Fraser Island and chase fish on the beach.
