5:30pm – Saturday, August 28 on TV 3

This week sees Matt and the team take six lucky anglers who won the chance to fish ‘Three Ways in Three Days’ on a life changing adventure in The ITM Fishing Show, screening on Saturday, August 28th at 5:30pm on 3.

As Matt and the team fly the winners to a remote coastline, where they get a crash course in land based fishing for big snapper, The ITM Fishing Show is celebrating another special event – the first ITM Fishing Media Awards, which will be held in the Bay of Islands on Saturday, August 28th.

“We’re approaching the 150th episode of The ITM Fishing Show, so it got us thinking about the highlights of the last six years,” Matt explains about how the event came into fruition.

“There’s been so many hard case adventures as we’ve taken our show from a far north garage to Hollywood and back, so we thought we should mark the milestone with a special event,” Matt continues.

“Despite the popularity of our show we’ve not received any invites to any awards ceremonies, maybe the Emmy awards people lost our address? So we thought, bugger it, we’ll do our own red carpet awards and bring a bit of Hollywood to the Bay of Islands!”

And that’s exactly what they’re doing, as Matt explains: “Some of the categories for the awards include ‘Best Lost Fish Tantrum’, ‘Best Fish Love Moment’, and ‘Best Angler On A Supporting Role’.

“Not only is it a chance to show the highlights of the last 150 episodes, but also some of the deleted scenes and moments when things have turned to custard.”

The ITM Fishing Media Awards will screen on TV3 later in the year, but in the mean time make sure not to miss Matt’s ‘Three Ways in Three Days’ adventure when The ITM Fishing Show continues its latest season on Saturday, August 28th at 5:30pm on 3.
