Fishin’ for a story

p James and Graeme Sinclair, from the television show Gone Fishin’, with the family from a locally-based worcester sauce business

Dargaville-based family business, Wild West Worcester, will once again be on screen in front of New Zealanders as they feature on television in an upcoming episode of Gone Fishin’.

The business team comprising of Katie Le Noel, Henry Peita and Dominique Peita, met TV presenter Graeme Sinclair and his son James on several occasions earlier this year, keeping in touch and waiting for the opportunity to showcase Northland’s west coast.

The idea of a west coast paradise with hunting and fishing on the doorstep finally tempted the Sinclairs, and they made the trip last week to spend a few days filming an episode for the popular show.

“We loved it up there but feel we have unfinished business —  we unearthed more than we filmed. The rest of the country fail to understand what is on offer, and we would love to learn more about the history of the area,” said TV presenter, Graeme Sinclair.

During one of the windiest and wildest weeks in some time, the crew spent time learning about local history from the museum and local fisheries officer, Cyril Ranginui and visited The Saucerer’s special hunting spot.

They also shared locally caught and smoked mullet — liberally dosed in Wild West Worcester sauce.

The episode will screen on Sunday, November 11 at 4.30pm.
