FOX seeks fly fisherman and family for reality program

FOX and Rocket Science Laboratories are searching for a fly fisherman with a fun family to participate on one of our family reality series.

We seek married couples with children over the age of 5. The show is a great experience for the whole family. Families chosen for the show receive $50,000.

Please contact Matt Silverberg at 323-802-0643 or msilverberg@rocketsciencelabs.com if you or anyone you know may be interested. Please feel free to pass this information along to anyone you know.

Thanks very much.

as ratings plumet on "The Boring Life", the producer makes the call: while the self absorbed sportsman is out of the house early, a Brad Pitt lookalike cleans the house and gives the neglected missus back rubs. Sparks fly when the Husband finds out what's been going on and grouses that Brad has misplaced the hackle pliers when he was dusting. When the Flyfisherman doesn't notice that the missus ran off with Brad weeks earlier, the producer has a rude and crude John Belushi look alike move into the house. The Flyfisherman is happy that no one is cleaning up his tying table. In the season fianle the Flyfisherman is pelted with eggs and ridiculed publicly by everyone he knows. Oh, and the wife and Brad get the 50 large. The show flops. The flyfisherman is happy to find that John Belushi has a boat and knows the coast like the back of his hand. They become fishing buddies.

I like the "survivor" idea but maybe combined with the "great race" in a flyfishing only tournament.

Twelve anglers start out in NYC with $100, no equipment and instructions to get to Alaska and land three species of Pacific salmon on fly. Last man to score gets eliminated. Next its its off to the Bahamas for a Grand slam, then Mongolia for Taimen and on around the world - a different challenge unique to each geography until there are only two anglers left standing.

The question is what would be the ultimate challenge and where would it be staged?

"John" and the estranged husband meet for an early outing on a pea soup morning to fish the airport flats. Navigating by sense of smell and GPS, they make their way. The sound of jets screaming overhead remind them of the days when they were just 40-something worker bees in the ratrace as they quietly motor ahead with the heavy salt air in their faces.

Suddenly a very strange boom and flash light the foggy sky, and a private jet plumets into the brine. Putting all danger aside, they hit the throttle to find twisted fragments of smoking metal and articles of luggage floating about, noticing the prevalence of brightly colored womens apparel in the water.

There - a blonde, waving her arms! And a brunette over there, next to the redhead! It's the new England Patriots Cheerleaders on their way to a playoff game. Luckily due to the low-altitude and air speed during landing approach the impact was low and vixens survived with minor cuts and bruises.

The anglers were given a heros' welcome, free tickets to the 50 yard line at the superbowl, interviews on Letterman, and it's rumored that they are seen discreetly out about town with a blonde and brunette whenever the Pats are in town.

Brad empties the ex's bank account of the 50k's and runs off with the redhead. In an ironic twist of fate the three men meet again on a triple cheerleader date and shake hands saying all is forgiven. They share a few drinks and book a trip to Cabo to chase roosterfish while the girls are on the road, they will hook up in Jacksonville in Feb.

But they will not be alone... as the ex-returns!

tune in next week...

Curiosity got the cat, I spoke with Matt today. This is for real BTW.

It's the trading spouses situation whereby the family they want to have be a swapee is a family where the dad is a flyfisherman. So Eddie was on track with his scenario, unless you would rather believe that they are looking for the articulate, environmentally aware C&R angler with meticulous attention to detail in tying and life alike verses the guy tying popsicles at the dining room table while watching the football game, feathers flying around the room and his waders hanging in the shower.

The 50 g's sure makes it tempting to find out - the resume is a video of your family explaining why you should get the cake. I would make a really good disfunctional flyfishing-obsessed dad to bring the cash flow into my family situation after the two weeks is over as long as my wife knew it was just an act (or is it?)

wifeswapping?

i dunno,i have enough problems with the one i have waiting two weeks for a hookup,and besides,I'm not enthralled with the way they intentionally pick folks from extremely different walks of life,and after watching a recent episode i see the wives get to choose where the penny's go,,=not even enough to buy a new inboard sledboat,while the company must make quite a profit from showing the world your mysery after pitting you against an adversarel counterpart,,nosir,,,,light all the candles you want honey; my fishing is MINE,unless you book a trip,let's see fiddy thou /divided by-----------------------

has anyone else seen the few adds of late for sport utility vehicles or cell phones and it will have some actor holding a fly rod 'fishing' with it?
The guy will be wading in a stream flinging the rod around with one hand and working the reel with the other
'Oh the Humanity!'...errr hilarity
