World Fishing Network Rings In The New Year With A Jam-Packed January
Programming Schedule Delivers More Than 30 New and Returning Series with New Episodes, Offering the Most Diverse Roster of Fishing Shows Available Anywhere
Lineup Includes Two All-New Original Programs, Shorelines with April Vokey and Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die
World Fishing Network, the leading entertainment destination and digital resource for anglers throughout North America, delivers more than 30 new and returning shows in January headlined by World Fishing Network’s new original productions, Shorelines with April Vokey and Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die.
“World Fishing Network has made a significant investment over the past year in its programming, and we’re pleased to offer two new original productions that cannot be seen anywhere else as part of our winter lineup,” said Jim Liberatore, President and CEO of World Fishing Network. “We serve a passionate audience of angling enthusiasts and are committed to providing them with the most diverse selection of entertaining and informative programming available anywhere.”
Starting Saturday, Jan. 10 at 11:30 a.m. ET, viewers will travel across the wilds of Canada as April Vokey and her companions set normal life aside and venture off on a journey to document and discover stories, myths and legends for her upcoming book covering the history of steelhead and Atlantic salmon fly fishing in North America. Determined, committed and driven to achieve her lifelong dream of authoring this book, Shorelines with April Vokey steps into the river and between the lines to face the unknown of life on the road – from fickle weather and wildlife to meeting an array of diverse personalities – both on and off the water.
Produced by the Emmy award-winning production company Winnercomm, Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die, based on the bestselling book of the same title by Chris Santella, travels to destinations that should be on the bucket list of every angler. Host Conway Bowman, recognized for his pioneering efforts to catch mako sharks on a fly rod along the coast of Southern California, brings the pages of this renowned book to life as he experiences the people, the places and most importantly, the fishing that makes each location one of the Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die, premiering Sunday, Jan. 11 at 12 p.m. ET exclusively on World Fishing Network.
