Host Biographies – Nick Duigan & Andrew Hart
Nick Duigan and Andrew Hart have been producing Hook, Line & Sinker for 10 years, when the pair first met in the news room of Southern Cross Television in Tasmania. They then 'borrowed' some camera gear, took holidays and made two pilot episodes of the show while working as news journalists in 2000. The show then ran in Tasmania only - where the boys continued to work on the local news, while going fishing whenever they could! In 2006 Hook, Line & Sinker went to air on the Southern Cross TEN network - with Regional Australia quickly learning to love the duo, who are the first to admit they don't know everything there is about fishing - in fact that's one of the shows differences - the boys put in the things other fishing shows leave out! This formula has seen the boys produce over 150 episodes. Nick and Andrew now run a production company called HLS Productions, which as well as Hook, Line & Sinker, also produces several other programs including Going Bush and Boating Tasmania.
