Paul Barnes
Hi all I am the owner of Paul's Fishing Kites, a fishing kite and tackle manufacturer based in New Zealand. I am also the developer of the TARGET snapper hook. A fish hook that reduces the catch of small fish and prevents fish swallowing the hook so they can be released unharmed. We have also designed an underwater bait setting device to prevent seabirds being caught on tuna surface longlines which has just been tested in Hawaii. I am an avid recreational fisher both from the shore with kites and sea fishing from boats as well as webmaster of the number 2 fishing site in New Zealand.
