Clarke changes scenery once more and leaves for the Great Barrier Island, north of New Zealand, where he finds fantastic backdrops and really easy fishing aboard another Jeanneau inboard powerboat, a beautiful Velasco 43F.
What a fantastic setting for Clarke Gayford! Now taking on the Great Barrier Island, this great lover of fishing in all its forms has set the programme: to fish and to eat. Accompanied by chef Anthony McNamara, Clarke goes on a quest for varied shellfish. In this sumptuous, well-preserved environment, fishing is easy and almost miraculous. In just a few minutes, Clarke, who dives underwater to fish for shellfish by hand, returns with enormous New Zealand shellfish (similar to our scallops) and XXL clams (like Arctic surf clams). The meal promises to be delectable…!
