Fisher drops a line overseas By DAMIEN McCARTNEY A DARWIN fisho has been taken out of the NT and thrown a fishing rod for a TV show debuting on National Geographic next week. King Fishers follows three fishers from different corners of the globe as they travel to each others home country with the goal of catching the biggest fish. Shane Compain took on Oz Chancharat from Thailand and Jason Rodd from Britain in his episode. Mr Compain, 25, said the show wasnt all about reeling in creatures. We got to go to each others countries, so we all got a little taste of the culture, and obviously how to fish there, he said. Ahead of his trip, Mr Compain had absolutely no idea how he was going to fish prior to his departure. He had never been to England or Thailand before. His British counterpart was in the same position when he got to the Top End. He had never used a bait caster before, so we had to teach him, he said. Mr Compain said the Darwin leg of the journey was successful. We all caught barras and saw plenty of crocs. He said the England leg was a weird experience. We were fishing in sub-zero temperatures and using bait that felt like playdough. The episode airs next Tuesday, August 13, at 8pm on National Geographic. Darwin angels receive award MORE than 50 people die from kidney-related disease every day in Australia. Almost 11,000 people are on dialysis and around 1000 are waiting for a kidney transplant. Darwins Danila Dilba Aboriginal Health Service is working hard to change that and has had its efforts recognised by Kidney Health Australia. They were recently awarded one of the services Operation Angel Awards, which pay tribute to the unsung heroes of the kidney health sector. The carers, the patients, doctors and nurses who work tirelessly to support those with kidney disease and to increase awareness of the need to reduce the burden of kidney disease, said Kidney Health Australias chief executive Anne Wilson. Danila Dilba has worked hard to slow the progression of chronic kidney disease in patients and in May 2008 commenced a kidney health program to service the greater Darwin region, making it the first primary healthcare service to commit a Nephrology Nurse Practitioner role in Australia. The service was extended in November 2009 to include primary health care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander end stage kidney disease patients.
