WFN Celebrating Fish, Fireworks And Freedom This Independence Day Weekend

Programming Marathon Airs July 4 and 5 Featuring IF4 Short Film, Mending the Line, and Season Three of FORCE on FORCE

World Fishing Network, the leading entertainment destination and digital resource for anglers throughout North America, presents Fish, Fireworks and Freedom this Independence Day weekend starting at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday, July 4, with an encore presentation Saturday, July 5 at 12:30 p.m. ET.

World Fishing Network pays tribute to the troops with a remarkable documentary about a World War Two veteran, followed by Season Three of FORCE on FORCE in its entirety. Fish, Fireworks and Freedom opens with Mending the Line, a profile on 90-year-old WWII veteran and fly fishing legend, Frank Moore. This special, 30-minute short film was presented as part of the 2014 IF4 International Fly Film Festival and follows Frank as he retraces his steps through Normandy to fish the waters he first saw as a 21-year-old soldier on D-Day in 1944. It’s a gripping and emotional journey as Frank, reflecting back upon his life, feels compelled to return to the rivers of Normandy, this time armed not with a gun, but with a fly rod and reel. He is joined by his wife of 70 years, Jeanne, and his son, Frankie.

A preview of Mending the Line can be seen HERE.

Then stay tuned as the branches of the U.S. Armed Forces battle each other on the waters of Lake Fork, Texas, as World Fishing Network airs the entire third season of FORCE on FORCE. Teams of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Bass Anglers faceoff against each other to land the biggest catch and lay claim to annual bragging rights. Catch the entire eight episode series immediately following Mending the Line.
