Dedicated Distributor Network

The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News is distributed through our continually expanding Dedicated Distributor Network.

Our Dedicated Distributors Network are businesses that commit to a minimal level of annual advertising, which enables us to specifically target our market for our advertisers and monitor our pick up rates.

Being a Dedicated Distributor Network of advertisers, has a two-fold effect:

  1. It attracts potential customers into advertisers’ premises.
  2. Because readers have to physically come to a distributor each month to pick up their copy of The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News, we can assure our advertisers that we are attracting quality, qualified customers.

The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News is a free monthly fishing and hunting tabloid that has been in circulation for 9 years. Initially a South Island publication, its popularity has seen demand increase to the degree we now have a growing circulation in the Lower North and more recently, circulation throughout a greater part of the North Island through the Smith’s City stores and leading marine outlets.

The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News is a very powerful tool and a great way of rewarding your customers, building loyalty and engaging customers in a manner that can help facilitate sales. You will find that ‘regulars’ will come in every month to get their ‘fix’ of The Fishing Paper, thereby helping you create a regular stream of potential sales.

The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News is New Zealand’s leading FREE fishing and hunting newspaper with over 110,000 readers each month, and a pick up rate of between 95% and 98%, and 100% throughout the summer months. However many avid readers pick up several copies and send them around the country and the world to friends and family, so we certainly get out there.

The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News is advertiser funded so the reader pays nothing to get your ad. This is excellent for our advertisers in an economic climate that has seen ‘paid for publications’ slump in sales. Our advertisers are still experiencing very good results because we are FREE and our distribution remains consistent.

The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News has strong and credible content, through this we have built strong trust with the readers.

The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News continually

  • puts your ads in front of a targeted audience and quality consumer every month.
  • introduces you to new customers, being FREE we get to a wider audience than magazines. Bringing you new customers.
  • puts your ads into the hands of your opposition’s customers. Every customer who picks up a copy of The Fishing Paper & New Zealand Hunting News from one of your competitor’s outlets is going to see your ad. Imagine if you could get you catalogue being given away at your competitors
  • promotes hunting and fishing at a local level, encouraging new and old to become active in the sports. Fostering future customers and increasing sales.

Join our Dedicated Distributor Network, advertising that keeps your customers coming back month after month, after month.
