7Seas Fishing on Flotsam Beach

Designing Worlds looks back to … the early days of Seven Seas Fishing!

Join Designing Worlds at 2pmSLT Monday 23rd November for this week’s show from the archives which goes right back to 2008, when we were still MetaMakeover, and 7Seas Fishing was a new game that was taking the grid by storm!

It was a very special show, as we held a fishing contest, on the waterfront at the back of our old Meta Makeover studios on Northpoint! And it was special for another reason, as it marked the first appearance of Elrik Merlin as co-host on the show!

In the first part of the show, Saffia interviewed the devisers of the wonderful 7Seas Fishing, Jen and Seven Shikami.

And in the second half of the show, we had our own fishing contest – live on TV! You can see Elrik Merlin interviewing some of the contestants – as well as Crap Mariner, a very keen fisher, achieving Hall of Fame status.
