Dave Greig: Hunter, Fisher, Filmmaker
Hunting and fishing are two outdoor passions that appeal to many kiwis. We’re thrilled to have Dave Greig on board as an ambassador in this area and have kitted him out with a few of our products. So who is he?
My name is Dave Greig and I’m a keen hunter / fly fisherman but have an overall love for the outdoors. I spend most of my time in the hills rambling around with my good mate Pete Doonan.
We have always enjoyed taking photos and making short films on trips into the back country, but over the last few years, this has become a big part of what we do. The challenge of making good quality genuine films that tell the story of our back-country adventures, to share with like-minded outdoors people is what keeps us both keen.
We feel really lucky to have the support of Southern Approach, who offer brands like Osprey, Scarpa, Sea to Summit, Black Diamond and a handful of other solid names in the market. We were already users of these brands, so it was easy to get on board.
Because these brands are more associated with other adventure sports like mountaineering and the like, they are not your typical hunting brands. The main things that Pete and I appreciate about them is the time and effort that goes into the production of the products. Everything is well thought out, well-designed and built. And the gear is made from materials that are durable, but are also light weight – a big advantage to us.
We’ve added a short compilation of trips we’ve collected over the past few years and we can’t wait to get stuck into making some more films. We are stoked to be doing that with the support of the team at Southern Approach.
