MOST locals are already sold on the Great Lakes lifestyle but the area, in particular the fishing and oyster industries, is about to be sold to the rest of Australia on the small screen.
The Hook and The Cook is a unique lifestyle program that brings together two of Australia’s most popular activities, fishing and cooking. It is presented by two seasoned practitioners, Scotty Lyons (the hook) and Paul Breheny (the cook). Each episode is a journey to a new destination where local seafood is sourced for consumption.
Scotty and Paul readily share their knowledge and pick up a few tips themselves from local experts.
Series one consists of 13 episodes and features locations in NSW, Victoria and Queensland.
Regional produce, local seafood and some beautiful parts of the country are highlighted throughout the series including episode seven which was shot on location in Forster and features fishing for Luderick in Wallis Lake, a tour of Barclay’s Oysters and a cook-up with the iconic Forster-Tuncurry Bridge as a backdrop.
The Forster episode will air on March 10 at 11.30am on 7TWO.
