After our highly successful maiden *Dads 'n Daughters Weekend*, we're running another! November 3-5,... read more
I don't mind admitting, that I do enjoy a good soup every now and then. But sometimes there's talk of brocolli or cauliflower soup in our household, and it puts a cold shiver up my spine. I mean, they just don't sound like a good, hearty soup. They sound like something you'd have at a weightwatchers meeting, or a colon-cleansing clinic...
Incredibly well said. Incredibly well filmed. Show this to all your non-hunter mates...
As Phil Robertson said so well, "There are two kinds of people in this world that go around beardless - boys and women - and I am neither one"
With another Father & Son Wildman Weekend soon to start, I figured it'd be a good time to throw up a few photos from our course we ran earlier in the year ... It was in March (I think!) when 12 dads and their boys decended upon our secret location somewhere in the southern hemisphere. They were an awesome bunch - with an international flavour! Two of our dads (who were unknown to each other) flew over from Australia to participate and hang out with their eastern cuzzies. We showed them a great time - in fact, we all had an amazing time! Amazing weather, amazing people, amazing food, amazing location ... you get the drift! Anyway, enough waffle - I'll let the pictures do the talking ...
Check out the trailer for the feature film from the upcoming RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival. It looks outstanding, and showcases some of the awesome fishing New Zealand (North Island) has to offer. Looks like it'll be well worth grabbing a ticket or two!
My boys and I were out shooting rabbits on a neighbours farm the other night. It was cheap entertainment - all it cost was a few rounds of .22 ammo, some diesel for my ute ... and time. And it was time well spent! The boys had a blast on the spotlights and we even managed to shoot a few - including an unlucky hare.
Ok, it should be pretty obvious by now, that we're not the world's best bloggers. Rather than coming in thick and fast, we sort of trickle them out ... one-by-one ... and only because of the overriding guilt that we haven't been more on-to-it! The reality is, we should be much better at it - in fact, we need to be! We've had a bunch of programmes already in 2014 - and nothing has been written about them (and they were fantastic - if I do say so myself!). We're always testing new outdoor gear - (because we're all gear freaks) - and haven't let anyone know what new peices of kit we've been playing with - and whether it's worthwhile, or a load of rubbish! Most of the team have been involved in plenty of adventures over the last 6 months - everything from 4wd trips over the Nevis Track, hunting red stags over the roar, helicoptering up Cecil Peak, panning for gold ... and much more! Yet, none of us have bothered sharing our stories - and hopefully inspiring others to do the same!
Just a quick post to let people know that our March 2014 Father & Son Wildman Weekend is now full!
