THE ITM FISHING SHOW
Saturday 3rd May, 5.30PM
The ITM Fishing Show returns to TV ONE to reel in the big one.
Be part of the action as passionate outdoorsman Matt Watson sets out to get the big catch. Whether he’s perched on the rocks, out in his boat, or working the rivers and streams, Matt shares his secrets to success on, in and under the water.
This season, Matt makes the most of the best local fishing hot spots, as well as heading to international destinations such as Samoa, Norfolk Island and Mexico.
Fishing is a favourite Kiwi pastime, and this iconic show continues to mix New Zealand’s great outdoors with fantastic local characters. It’s as good as getting out on the water - without the early morning start.
