Viewers were reeling after the parody aired, with one person writing on Twitter: ‘The s****est fishing show I have ever watched’.

Another said: ‘So… I think Channel 7 bought a NZ parody fishing show without realising it’s a comedy.

‘For starters, they talk about snorting cocaine and using a drone to film yourself having sex, yet it’s on at 10.30am on a Sunday.’

The mockumentary, pegged as ‘New Zealand’s most high-octane, extreme fishing show,’ began screening in New Zealand last May.

The first episode contains constant sexual innuendo and fake fishing references. The pair fail to catch a fish and end up frying sausages on a barbeque.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Seven for comment.
