Life Member, Public Relations, LegaSea & Fisheries Management
Richard is your typical good, keen Kiwi family man with fishing in his DNA. He was introduced to fishing by his father at the age of four, fishing off a wharf in Port Charles, Coromandel, and has never looked back. Onehunga Wharf and Mangere Bridge were favorites in his youth, then progressing to rock fishing and diving around most of the North Island's ledges once he could drive. In his late 20’s he progressed to game fishing from trailer boats but still enjoys getting out on the rocks occasionally. Over the years he has introduced many people to fishing and has enjoyed assisting them to catch trophy kingfish and their first marlin.
