ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Graeme Sinclair, as host of the popular programme Gone Fishin, needs no introduction in New Zealand. For five years the series has shown twice a week on TV.
A season as weather presenter on TV3 ensured he is now known in every New Zealand household and as a result his already popular Gone Fishin climbed the ratings as more and more people discovered the joys of going fishing and having fun. Gone Fishin is not only shown twice weekly in New Zealand but has also been sold and syndicated to 8 other countries, including the USA and several European countries.
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.
Graemes personal tragedy, with the discovery he has multiple sclerosis and the effect it has had on his life, life is what you make of it and as long as Im around to draw breath I will make the most of lifes 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.
