We're almost there!

Most of my time and energy this past month has gone towards putting the final touches on Nice Fish Jr., and it’s almost ready!  I’m hoping to have it airing on WILD TV and CHEK News in the next few weeks. It’s been a long process with some delays along the way, but the final outcome is going to be well worth the wait.

This entire process of producing Nice Fish Jr. has been great as it has allowed me a lot of time to spend with my grandkids. A couple of weeks ago I took Dylan to Stamp River for a shoot where he fished for steelhead; supposedly slow fishing this late in the season. The guide told us they were averaging 1 or 2 steelhead a day. Dylan caught 5, and landed 4. What a wonder kid that one is!

I was also able to enjoy a bit of relaxation in Mexico last week when my wife and I took a short trip to visit Ann Sobey. Her casa is absolutely spectacular and the three of us always have a great time. It’s back to the grind now though for, yes, you guessed it, another busy spring.

A Very Busy Winter

Happy New Year everyone! We had an extremely busy 2010, and there is no sign of stopping. Over the winter we have been working on, as well as completed, a lot of exciting deals. Nice Fish has entered a new country! 26 episodes of Nice Fish were sent over to Greece where it will be broadcast on White Fox. We are also airing on a new station in the states this year called Legacy TV, a Christian station that was launched just last year in January 2010. As well, we have put together a fantastic promotion on Wild TV where all four of my shows, “Nice Fish”, “Sport Fishing On The Fly”, “Gary Cooper’s Fishing Diary”, and my new series “Nice Fish Junior” will air on Wild TV three times per week each. On that note, I am very excited to announce that after years of creative reflection and hard work, I will be releasing my new series Nice Fish Junior next month. It is hosted by my 11-year-old grandson Dylan with guests such as his little brother Cameron. It’s been a blast to produce and I’m sure it’s going to be my best show yet. Check out our promo!

A Busy Fall

This is becoming a theme. After a little down-time-trip to Disneyland with the Grandkids, and camping across the Western Provinces, I'm back in the office, and back on the water. In fact, I'm as busy today as I was 20 years ago, working with my editor in the Chek TV studio, here in Victoria. I also recently had the chance to fish for Summer-run Steelhead in Port Alberni's legendary Stamp River, and one of its pools recently named after yours truly-what an honor! In the midst of archiving, I came across this old video of me and my editor at CHEK, also reminiscing about some recent Summer-run Steelhead fishing. Check it out! I think I still have that shirt somewhere...

A Busy Summer

This was the year that I was supposed to slow down. I dont think so. I gave the rights to "The Lodge" to WFN. They will be producing a new season. Good Luck to QCL and WFN. And Speaking of WFN. Nice Fish is on quite a few times a week in both standard definition and HD. We sent them 26 new episodes so check it out. Did some interesting shows this year. One at QCL in aid of the Abilitis Foundation to help build a Lodge on a ranch for disabled people and thier families. A generous bidder paid $4250 to go fishing with me for the day. I think he was more interested in donating money to the foundation than spending a day with me. Was it worth it? Watch the episode. Did a show at Escott Sportfishing out of Massett Haida Gwai. My wife was my guest. Great episode as you learn a little about the Haida. Great Sockeye episode was shot in the Straits of Juan de Fuca. Thirty million sockeye heading back to the Fraser River? What is that all about?

Cambell River Tyee Pool was exciteing. The town was great at hosting me. Thanks to Tourism Campbell River, Patti Finn's Seafood Restaurant, Hilmark Boats and Randy Killoran. Did I catch a Tyee in the Tyee Pool?

I am off to Duncanby in Rivers Inlet for some great Coho Fishing. Wish me luck.

A busy Spring

Its been a hectic time with the production company having its biggest year ever. It is wearing me out. The new series of Nice Fish is now airing nightly on CHEK News TV channel 6 on most west coast TV sets and on Canadian satellite (Shaw and Bell carry the station on the low tier feeds so it is available to many across Canada).

It is broadcast every evening at 11:30 PM. That means 2:30 am in the east. Set those recorders and PVRs as these episodes are the best that I have done in 22 years.
