OK, my blog and the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission is all about getting folks outdoors–get off your butt, turn off the TV and get outside! But, I have to admit, I love to watch the hunting and fishing shows on TV, and DVDs as much as the next guy. I can remember when I was thrilled to find Harold Ensley, Curt Gowdy, or Virgil Ward on TV, but now there are a ton of outdoor shows on TV. Some of those shows are excellent, and some, well, not so excellent. I cannot watch them all, but I will tell you that there are a couple I watch religiously. First of all, anything done by the Lindners is first class and full of information that will help you catch fish, http://www.lindnermedia.com/angling-edge . You can watch excerpts of their 2012 episodes here, http://www.youtube.com/user/LindnerMedia . My VCR is set to record their show every week (9:00 Sunday mornings on Fox Sports Midwest here in Lincoln).
And then if you have been reading my blog for anytime, you will know that I am a HUGE fan of the In-Fisherman and all of their magazines, books, DVD’s, radio and TV shows!
As a matter of fact, you might want to pay particular attention to their 4th and 6th episodes of their 2012 season. Why would I say that? Well, if you need a reminder, go back and read this blog post, http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/blogs/2011/10/pinch/ . I have been told that the “stuff” we filmed last fall will air on episode 4 and episode 6 of their 2012 season. Episode 4 will air for the first time on the week of January 16 and episode 6 will show for the first time on the week of January 30. Their episodes will repeat later and those two particular episodes will repeat for the first time on March 5 and then March 19. In-Fisherman TV can be seen on the Sportsman Channel and each episode shows 4 times each week, Monday 1:00 p.m. Central Time; Thursday at 7:00 a.m. Central Time; twice on Saturday, 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Central Time; and once on Sunday, 1:00 a.m. Central Time. You can see excerpts of In-Fisherman TV here, http://www.in-fisherman.com/in-fisherman-tv/ .
We did a lot of filming over two days. All of that will have been cut down to a couple of 10-minute segments. I have no idea what might be included and what might have been cut; I will be watching just like the rest of you. I know you will see some of the best fishing Nebraska has to offer, and who knows, you might even see someone you recognize!
P.S. I don’t have to wear a tuxedo or dress up for the premiere, do I?
