The Nissan Navara has been named as the 4×4 vehicle of choice for popular angling TV programme, Inside Angling.The show sees its team travel in excess of 100 000 km per season in search of unspoiled coastline and wild rivers where the huge varieties of game fish can be found in Southern Africa.
Based on a catch-and-release angling philosophy with environmental and animal care a priority, the now three-year-old series has been captivating audiences and focuses on showcasing the diverse species that can be found in Southern Africa. Executive Producer Brad Cartwright, comments: “Having to cover such diverse terrain, from the berg, through the bush and to the beach, we needed a reliable 4×4 with the towing capacity for our large boats to reach any destination. The Nissan Navara ticked all the boxes, making it an easy 4×4 choice.”
Nissan Navara Product Manager at Nissan South Africa, Marinus Venter, elaborates: “Yet another accolade for the Nissan Navara is of course great news and with our name being represented in the world of sustainable angling, our ties to environmental responsibility have been reiterated. The Nissan Navara in 4×4 guise is a formidable off-road bakkie with luxurious equipment, rugged and practical design, a generous load box, advanced 4×4 systems and 3 000 kg towing capacity – not to mention superb on-road and long distance comfort. Furthermore, the recent addition of the new Navara Safari takes these attributes even further with its specialised accessories specifically designed for overlanding.”
Nissan’s involvement in and support of recreational angling was motivated by the Roam Free conservation initiative, driven by fishtube.tv. The innovative and free smartphone app-based concept promotes the sustainability of recreational angling, which remains the largest participatory sport in South Africa.
Cartwright concludes: “Provided you have the right vehicle to get you there, the waters of Southern Africa are home to practically every fish that you could ever want to catch…and of course, release. The Nissan Navara is that vehicle!”
Fishing adventure action can be followed at fishtube.tv. Inside Angling premieres every Monday evening at 19h00 on Supersport.
