FlyFishAR Hal:

Will had a set of Cabela's waders with a big logo on the front of them. Hodgeman was one of the show sponsors and they weren't too happy about Will's waders. When they found out that they didn't make them that small they got over it pretty quick. I wish will would have landed that one big rainbow. It was probably half again as big as the one we got into the net. The one he landed was only about 28" but the one he lost must have been in excess of 32". It would have made a terrific show at least. you'll have to bring the boys down and we can do some fishing.

pmflyfisher John,

I saw the entire show, but I had to miss the last half hour of "Remember The Titans" . Since I had seen it probably 20 times before no big deal. Big football family here you know.

Will was very non chalant about his first TV show. Looked real patient to me, going to be a heck of fisherman.

Did not know they made waders that small !

Bet I know what fly was being used.

Congratulations on the show !

Liked your Texas accent also.

FredA John,

Apparently the OLN programming is different here in my neck of the woods. Duck hunting show was on at 9:30. I'll keep looking for it.

That father and son time spent is great. Makes you glad to be alive.

Now, I'm in to the "grandfather" relationship mode. My granddaughters are getting big enough to go now, and are interested. The grandsons are still too small, but a couple of more years!

This is the year for my granddaughters, though. (Incidentally, I broke 'em in when they were a couple of years old on sunnies, just to get 'em started!)

The best part is.......

It was one of his best days ever. I can't believe we were fortunate enough to have a camera crew with us while it happened. He and I had a wonderful father/son time. If he hadn't landed so darn many fish you could have seen some of that as well.

Will done good!

Wow - he really did a great job! I couldn't get over him, grinning from ear to ear, giving a double "thumbs up"! Tell him personally for me that he really is a good fisherman, just like his Dad.

I hope you made some video copies for his grandparents, and also for him to keep his memories alive for the future!

That brings back memories of me with my three year old son, Mike, on opening day many years ago - a snowy day, and he even had to go to the bathroom - had to undress him in the snow so he could go! It was a cold, icy day, too - but he didn't complain. Of course, he had to use a spinning rod at that tender age. And when his big rainbow hit, I let him play it himself . All the other fishermen yelled "Hey - he's got a big one! Take the rod away from the kid and land it." Yeah, of course I let him play and land it himself, offering words of encouragement. Somewhere around here, I still have a snapshot of that big occasion, and, though almost thirty years ago, he still talks about it!

You got it........

Hey Fred...........

That's correct. Will's show will be on the Outdoor Channel this Friday evening the 14th.

The show time is 9:30est / 8:30cst / 7:30mst / 6:30pst

I hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it. :hehe:

02-14-2003 06:12 PM
FredA Back to the top. I should be looking for this at 9:30 pm est tonight, right?
02-10-2003 08:36 AM
Just a reminder

Will's show airs today Monday the 10th at 11am CST (12 noon CST, 9am PST)

Hopefully, the network will get it correct this time. I amstarting to feel like the boy that cried wolf.

Thanks for the update!

Thanks -

I'll be watching - a 6 year old! Wow, that is great!

John the lurker.......

Sorry guys...I've been reading but I've been so busy I haven't had much time to respond lately. The production company sent two shows to the Outdoor channel at the same time. Evidently they got the show mixed up so they crossed the schedules. Will's show comes on the 10th,12th and the 14th. The schedule is as follows, Outdoor Channel, Hunter's Journal

Monday the 10th .............11am CST..............12 noon EST/9am PST
Wednesday the 12th ........8am CST ..............9am EST/7am PST
Friday the 14th ................8:30 CST .............9:30 EST/7:30PST

Will caught some good fish that day. Watching a 6 year old loose a 32" fish is quite a site. At least the fish gave him a good jump. He lands some other nice fish though.


PS: I shot another show on the White last weekend that will probably air later this summer.

pmflyfisher Yes when is it, it when up on to my TV flyfishing show radar screen this week. Its the Hunter Journal so I will look at OLN TV web site tonight for the schedule, it may be listed.

Let us know

BTW, where you have you been John up to some secret things I suspect.

Hey, FlyFishAR

I've been watching 'em all just in case - nothing so far. Any updates for us?

02-03-2003 11:35 AM
Well they got the shows mixed up darn it.......

Well it looks like the Outdoor Channel has switched shows. I have been told that it will air next week in lieu of this week. They sent two show tapes at the same time and evidently programming at the Outdoor Channel got them mixed up. I'll update everybody next week.

Sorry for the confusion.

FlyFishAR Bob:

I had the schedule before they set up their spring line up. I must have misunderstood what they told me.
