As part of our Kiwi-Made series, we continue to focus on small, local businesses in New Zealand. Last issue, we spoke to Hawke’s Bay couple Francois and Sarah-Lee Guittenit, who are becoming increasingly well known for their exquisite tiny houses, and this time, we talk to two businesses who, driven by their passion for fishing, are creating unique artworks in New Zealand.
Read our front-page story to find out more about Gyotaku NZ, a Japanese artform available in NZ, and Fish Art by Tauranga-based Gary Longley who sketches fish in dynamic poses as opposed to what he calls “frying-pan shots” where the subject is placed side-on.
More on the news front is the second police gun buy-back scheme that started on 1 February 2021, increase in beacon registrations, Climate Change Commission’s draft release on how NZ must reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and a decline seen in the global population of sharks in rays.
There’s all this and more in Fishing & Outdoors‘ latest issue.
