Scott & Mig - Fishing & Adventure
Eight years ago, when Fishing and Adventure was not much more than a pipe dream, Honda Marine took a chance on the team and came on-board as their first official sponsor.
“For us, Honda was always the number one choice. When you're a completely unknown entity and you're pitching an edgy show idea, it's not surprising if sponsors take one look and run the other way. Thankfully, Honda Marine saw the potential in us and in the show and they agreed to give us a chance. “Explains Scott Parry, Company Director and Presenter of Fishing and Adventure.
“We love working with the team at Honda. Eight years in and we can happily say these guys have been nothing but awesome to deal with. We have had years of completely hassle-free boating, and we have definitely put it to the test, with long days on the water filming around remote parts of the country. Being able to rely on our Honda BF250 is key.” Adds Parry.
