“Thanks this is a fantastic slice of the real New Zealand thanks for making it . my dad is one of the guys in this and being the daughter I have only been the once ( In 45 years) out of whitebait season with my future husband! I know I would be welcome now if I wanted to go but it was very much where the blokes went when I was growing up ... not a place for daughters! ” — JanSimmons
