The author Graeme Sinclair, has hosted one of the most popular programmes Gone Fishin. For five years the series aired twice a week.
After five years on New Zealand television, Graeme has written the book, not just about the programme but about the people he meets and the joy of experiencing some of the best fishing in the world. More than that, he tells of fishing secrets and tips gathered along the way and how the reader can get in on the action.
Graeme's personal tragedy, with the discovery he has multiple sclerosis and the effect it has had on his life, is covered frankly and without rancour In his view - "life is what you make of it and as long as I'm around to draw breath I will make the most of life's opportunities and get through the challenges".
The series continues unabated, the only difference is that the author, director and often, star of the show, now sits in a wheelchair occasionally.
A hero to a whole generation of kids who just want to go fishing, a role model to anyone who has ever suffered from a disability, Graeme continues to do what he enjoys most and you can read all about that in Gone Fishin.
