Fishing the Wild

Run for the Hills Productions and Fishing the Wild has called on Weave Films to help produce and coordinate an exciting new fishing and adventure documentary television series in remote Arnhem Land.

Fishing the Wild is a six-part documentary television series that follows two longtime friends Morgan Hartney and Hamish Simpson as they roll up their swags, pack their fishing rods and hop in a small tinny to journey into one of the most remote, spectacular and dangerous places on earth in search of adventure and the ultimate catch.

Their journey through remote Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory is one of discovery, camping, fishing, cooking and living-off a land traditional Indigenous ownership has helped protect and preserve for millennia - an incredible marine and land environment that offers breath-taking scenery, dramatic challenges and the very best fishing in the world.

Weave Films' Emma Masters says working on Fishing the Wild is a great opportunity to showcase a beautiful part of the world, to learn more about Indigenous culture and community and to feature the very best in the world's most popular pasttime - fishing.

"I'm really excited to be part of a project that brings all of those elements together," Emma says.

"They form such an important part of what makes living in the Northern Territory so appealing to so many people.

"It's also fantastic to be working and collaborating with Territory-based crew Run for the Hills Productions / Fishing the Wild Pty Ltd.

"This series marks a step forward in Territory filmmakers telling stories about their home and what means to them."

Fishing the Wild will be filmed on location during November and December this year.

It is slated for broadcast on Seven Mate in mid-late 2015.
