Back before Satellite TV and the Internet one would get their "fishin Jones" fix via magazines or cable TV. A lazy Saturday afternoon not spent on the rivers would find me on the couch surfing for some form of fishing porn. The shows were typically all the same. Bass guys, Pike guys, Walleye guys and the Trolling Salmon guys. Occassionaly there would be a glimpse into steelheading via the Canadian Sportfishing guys or Bob but for the most part there was nothing sufficient to fill the void. It was not until a show called Sport Fishing BC came on the air that the adventures in the pursuit of Anadramous Species became properly portrayed . In the early days Mark Pendlington represented!!! Oh some of the places he fished were awe inspiring and left one longing to visit the West Coast or at least your local trib. That is what a fishing show should do. It should inspire...
In recent times Mark seems to have strayed from his roots and taken to chasing Rainbows on the moutain lakes or some coastal boat fishing adventures but I ran across this gem on Vimeo today that gave me some hope that he will be getting back to his roots. Fingers crossed.
