Bohane's pho- tographs reveal the turbulent, layered relationships between traditional kastom beliefs and Christianity embroiled into the social and political movements of the area. Bohane's practice as a photographer is immersive and involves living with a wide range of kastom, tribal and rebel groups, and at times risking his life.

Fine weather and big fish were all Plimmerton fishermen wanted at their annual competition on March 2 and 3, and they got it. The biggest fish landed in Plim- merton Boating Club's competition were Craig Simpson's whopping 22.5 kilogram hapuka and a 19kg king- fish caught by Phil Rich. Mr Simpson also took the overall weight prize, catching 70.735kg of fish over the weekend. Nigel Adler hooked a 8.365kg snapper to win the Pacific cruise prize and the Trevor Freeman Mem- orial Snapper trophy. Runner-up was Scott Davies with a 6.06 kg snapper. Gourmets were the other winners on the day. Most fish caught over the weekend went into a public auction, with money raised going towards teaching young people to sail, said competition organiser Jon Mayne. This year's event was blessed with fine weather on both days, bringing out 52 boats and over 150 competi- tors from as far away as Foxton. The weekend was a great success, Mr Mayne said. Boats were queuing up from 6am on the Saturday morning eager to get out there and chase that elusive big snapper.'' The boats ranged from four-metre tinnies to the impressive 14m laun- ches that had entered the compe- tition from Mana Marina, he said.
