2018 TOP CATCH MASTER CLASS SEMINARS

Catch up on the latest fishing tips and techniques in the new Top Catch Master Class fishing seminars.

This year’s Master Class seminar programme, which has been put together with help from leading fishing retailer Top Catch and leading Kiwi fishing magazine New Zealand Fishing News, will address a wide range of topics and feature easy-to-understand, practical advice from some of the country’s top fishing experts.

The Master Class seminars will cover popular topics such as Better Bait Fishing with Adam Clancy; Killer Kingfish Techniques with Ben Pokaia; Working the Workups with Paul Senior & Mark Kitteridge; The Art of Softbait and Micro Jigging with Adam Royter; Catching More Gamefish with Luke Davis; and Winter Snapper Fishing and Simple, Effective Fish Filleting with Bruce Duncan.

There will also be sessions on Understanding Marine Electronics with Josh Western; Clever Kayak Fishing with Stephen Tapp; Fishing from Jetskis with Kirk Davis; Drone Fishing with Milton Freer and Squid Fishing the Hauraki Gulf with Eisuke Kawakami.

The Top Catch Master Class seminars will be held throughout the four days of the show in the new Top Catch Master Class Seminar Centre in The Rock Fishing Hall. This new, especially designed area will be home to the NZ Fishing News stage, from which most of the speakers will share their specialised knowledge. There will also be a more intimate demonstration stage to enable close-up viewing of the fish filleting demonstrations and the like.

After each presentation, the expert speakers will remain in the Top Catch Master Class Seminar Centre to answer individual questions and offer more detailed advice.

The Top Catch Master Class Seminar Centre will also be handily positioned alongside the Top Catch stand. To support the Master Class presenters and make it easy for those attending, the Top Catch team is assembling dedicated packages for each Master Class topic and they will be offering these at special show-only prices.
