Ice Fishing Fun with New Zealand Distributor.

March 13, 2017

On Friday, March 10th, 2017 Hayden Kuyf from REL Group - Degelman Distributor for New Zealand – visited Degelman Industries for a plant tour and to gain some product knowledge and additional training.

Hayden toured the Degelman Factory and spent time with Degelman R&D team reviewing and researching the “fit” of Degelman Products for New Zealand.

On Sunday, Hayden joined Jack Degelman, Sheldon Mohr and Justin Rieger for an afternoon of ICE FISHING, a Saskatchewan favourite pass-time. As you can imagine, Hayden, a 23 year New Zealand native who was brand new to ice fishing, was shocked and fascinated both by the cold weather and the fact that it had thickened the ice so much that we were able to drive on it!

So with holes drilled through 36 inches of ice, warm clothing that barely fit and good warm boots, the tents were set up and the heaters were heating. The adventure and banter began, pitting one tent of “young mates” against the other more mature “seasoned fellows” in a friendly “who can catch the most and who can catch the next one” competition.

No one went away “skunked” for a fun day of fishing on Buffalo Pound Lake north of Moose Jaw, catching enough Perch for an on-ice fish fry and extras to take home.

The day was filled with many laughs and memories.

We hope you enjoyed the adventure “Z”!
