2 min read

We’re back with another issue packed with the latest news and updates from the fishing, hunting, and boating industries.

First off, we highlight New Zealand-owned business High Country Salmon. On the canals near Twizel is their farm growing a somewhat unique food source – glacial mountain salmon – with the Mackenzie Country supporting the only freshwater farming of its kind in the world.

This specialist business is the legacy of the Logan family that was started back in 2000. The farm produces salmon from the man-made glacial-fed canal system.

High Country Salmon is completely free of vaccinations, growth hormones, and antibiotics, and the company also has a zero-waste policy, which means that every part of the salmon possible is used. Read more about this unique business in our cover story.

Also, thanks to the High Country Salmon team, we have two prize packs to give away to Fishing & Outdoors readers! Enter here. Deadline is 20 October 2020.

In other news, the annual Auckland Boat Show was called off by the organisers due to COVID-19 restrictions and the certainty on which level will be in force at the time of the scheduled show.

Trout season begins next week (1 October) so make sure you have everything ready before the season kicks off.

Speaking of trout, F&O‘s Tony Orman has some advice on how to keep your flies easy and simple.
