Black As Rebooted (Series 3)


Black As Rebootedfollows Series 1 and Series 2.

The Black As boys are back! They need to get to a large town a few hundred kilometres away to enter a fishing competition. The stakes are high: $3,000 for the biggest barramundi, $2,000 for the biggest mackarel and $1,000 for the biggest Crayfish.

The boys have an old van and can borrow a dinghy and trailer, but the shortcut to the comp is a rough track and one can only pray they get there in one piece.

If the dinghy doesn't make it, they have heard that Oppy has a big boat just sitting there ready for the "borrowing". Either way Joe knows of a perfect little island to the north where they are bound to get a big enough catch to take out all three categories.

Just hope Oppy doesn't get wind of it...

Black As goes deep into the heart of remote Australia, with a healthy respect for ancient ways, modern ingenuity and what it is to be a young fella in the bush today.
