On the Rise

After finishing up filming for the second season of "Fly Fisherman" early last spring, I was approached by the good folks at Intermedia Outdoors and asked if I would be interested In hosting the celebrated fly fishing/conservation television show, "On the Rise."

For those unfamiliar with "On the Rise," it is a long-running, well respected fly fishing show that is sponsored and co-produced by Trout Unlimited. Each show takes the viewers to a new fly fishing destination in North America and showcases a past, present or future conservation story related to that drainage and fishery and shares what TU along with other groups and individuals are doing to help conserve, protect and preserve each of these precious resources.

I'll tell you what I told my wife after being asked about hosting this show. "It's my dream job!" No really, I know a lot of you are saying "of course, it's any angler's dream job." and you may be right.  But for me it really brings together so many things I am passionate about. For as long as I can remember I have had a deep concern for our natural environment and the animals and fish that inhabit it.  My hope is that my being involved with the show helps Trout Unlimited continue to do the great work they have done for years. I am truly honored they have given me a chance to be a part of something so important.

Tune into the "Sportsman Channel"Now!! "On the Rise is showing four times a week. Here is a link the the Trout Unlimited website for air times and show details. Enjoy. http://www.tu.org/press-room/on-the-rise
