FIVE SALTY ESSENTIALS WITH: GEORGE BOURKE, SKIPPER

 This salty sea dog needs no introduction! you may have seen him in some of our campaigns or bumped into him on the water while skippering on one of the Hauraki Express boats. George Burke is a renowned skipper & talented angler who spends more time on the sea than on land! his knowledge on the Hauraki gulf is dangerously good & makes keeping you on the fish look easy.

     

Yeti 12oz Rambler

My recent purchase of a yeti mug not only changed my social status amongst peers but as a bonus, it is one handily little mug. This thing keeps hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold. In the mornings this little weapon is loaded with an extra-strong “Bourkeys Perkys” percolator coffee to get me into the zone for charters then come afternoon is rinsed out and a cheeky Sailor Jerry’s and coke takes its place. And would you believe it's available at the fisherman's den.
