Kootenay Lake’s fine fishing scene is going to be broadcast to angling enthusiasts everywhere this Friday.

Last fall the popular Canadian documentary fishing program The Dimestore Fisherman was in the area shooting an episode with Nelson’s Kerry Reed of Reel Adventures Fishing. This weekend on the World Fishing Network (channel 152 on Shaw Cable), the episode will air. The airtimes are Friday at 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. and again on Saturday at 6 a.m.

“From our perspective when you’re out there and you’re on that water and those mountain peaks are breaking through the clouds and you can see the ceiling and it’s pretty amazing,” Jim Hoey, host and producer of The Dimestore Fishermen, told the Star last fall. “It’s an amazing feeling. We certainly want to encourage anyone who lives in the Kootenays to experience Kootenay Lake themselves. It’s a resource that’s right there and it’s one of a kind.”

The Dimestore Fishermen is in its 14th season of production and travel across Canada.

“We’re travelling through the spring, summer and fall all over Canada to produce our program,” said Hoey. “It’s something where we do try to explore the cultural, historical and recreational aspects of the Canadian communities that we visit.”

The episode will also air on Shaw video on demand.
