Fishing show with a difference

New Zealanders looking for fishing with a female twist are set to get an exciting new fishing and lifestyle show with ‘ADOS Addicted to Fishing’ airing on television later this month.

Produced and hosted by Nicky Sinden, the new show will air on Prime Television at 4pm on March 29.

‘ADOS Addicted to Fishing’ host Nicky Sinden.

The show is described as New Zealand’s premiere fishing lifestyle show for people of all walks of life.

Each week Nicky and a fisher chick guest track down local fishing legends, who are invited out on the boat with the girls.

‘ADOS Addicted to Fishing’ intends not to just grab the attention of New Zealand’s predominantly-men fisher folk, but to also resonate with the growing number of woman anglers and children.

In many coastal and inland locations throughout the country exists local identities or legends as we know them, who over the years have honed their knowledge about the fishing in their locality.

Nicky and ‘ADOS Addicted to Fishing’ hopes to tap into this vast knowledge store and let the local legends tell their story, while providing Nicky and viewers with hints and tips to aid them in their own fishing quests.

But the story doesn’t end there – the show features not just the destination, but the journey along the way, and the various locations or stories associated. The first series of the show will concentrate on the upper North Island, with later series to be spread throughout New Zealand and the Pacific.

Well-known in fishing circles, since she held a hand-line at three years old, Nicky has fished many locations throughout New Zealand and the Pacific.

In recent years Nicky was a contestant on another New Zealand fishing show, plus has featured on an Australian-screened fishing show.

With a great family of series partners, Nicky is able to provide viewers with some amazing insight into the latest fishing methods, technology; and also how to care for the variety of fishing-based products most Kiwis have access to.

‘ADOS Addicted to Fishing’ premiers on Prime on Saturday, March 29 at 4.30pm. For more information, visit
