National Geographic- King Fishers

Well folks tomorrow night May 4th at 7pm PST our National Geographic show will be airing in the US. From there it will go Internationally!

I had the honour of traveling to Brazil and England along with fishing for Sturgeon in BC, for a new show on National Geographic called King Fishers. 3 anglers compete against eachother for the title of King Fisher!

Lets just say this is something you do not want to miss! I had the highlight on my fishing life all documented on camera! A one in a million day happened, and we have been awaiting this show to air for everyone to see.

Follow us on twitter and facebook for more frequent updates with this show and what else is going on with Sturgeon Slayers.

If your thinking of fishing with us this year, now is the time to shoot us an email to get the dates you want. We appreciate having you on the water with us and look forward to seeing some new and old faces this year.

What’s up with the Blog?

I’m sure some of you who check into our blog are wondering where we have been! The quick answer to that is busy!

We are at the tail end of our busy season. Sturgeon fishing slows for the winter months and the ice will soon be on the lake in Lytton. As one season ends another begins. It’s tradeshow season! Our first show is in a couple weeks already. We will be at the Vancouver Men’s Show November 18-20th at Tradex in Abbotsford. We will have our Ruddocks Ranch booth up and will be bringing the Fly Fishing Film Tour to the show. An hour of entertainment played daily for those looking to sit back and relax while at the show.

After Christmas we will be heading for a couple shows in Alberta and then back to BC for the BC Boat and Sportsmen Show held again at Tradex in Abbotsford. There is no shortage of things going on so that is why we have been absent from this blog.

If you didn’t know already, we run another blog called Fishing in BC. This is updated every couple days with information around BC. We keep it fresh and are always up for posting your pictures. Feel free to send us any information that is relevant to BC, to info@fishinginbc.com.

As some of you may or may not know. I recently wrote the feature article for Nov/Dec issue of BC Outdoors Magazine called Modern Dinosaurs. I am proud of the way it came together. It is different from most typical writing styles, and information usually given about Sturgeon fishing. I stressed handling and care for our Sturgeon and I believe that was evident in the article. It is available now in stores! If you are interested in buying a subscription to the magazine (stocking stuffer) click HERE to be redirected to the BCO website.

As social media is everywhere we have made a point of updating our facebook business page and our twitter accounts regularly. It is much easier to do a quick update on these than on the site. If you are interested please follow us @STURGEONSLAYERS on twitter or search for us on facebook.

Our new t-shirts are available as well which are another good stocking stuffer for your fishing die hards. They are $25 each. Contact us if you want yours!

Our gift certificates are available year round and are good towards anything we offer! This is a seriously good gift idea for not only family and friends but co-workers and employees. You pick the amount, we will send you the GC.

Brendan Morrison from the Calgary Flames will be at The Fly Fishing Film Tour tonight presented by The Fishin Hole in Calgary. Click HERE for the landing page for the shows being presented by TFH in Canada. Not only will you see awesome film production but you can win a free guided trip with BMO!

December 2nd in Winnipeg it will be the captain of the Winnipeg Jets, Andrew Ladd. He will be our special guest for the evening of The Fly Fishing Film Tour. Make sure you get your tickets early!

If you are involved with a Lodge or your a business owner. Email me (info@flyfishingfilmtour.ca) to find out how you can become involved with F3T for 2012. With print,video, and internet exposure across Canada it is pretty tough to beat for a marketing campaign to a targeted audience.

Please feel free to send us emails with your thoughts.

Grinding It Out

The last couple months has been a blur for us. We have traveled to Alberta 3 times for the business. Two of them were for the Calgary and Edmonton sportsmen shows put on by CNSS. A job well done by Laurie Paetz and her crew. The Calgary show featured the first preview of the Fly Fishing Film Tour. We presented one hour to give folks an idea of what it was all about. The full IP show is 2 hours in length and will be in various cities. Anyone can purchase the rights to present the FFFT in their area. If you are interested email us.

From Calgary it was back to BC for the Abbotsford BC Boat and Sportsmen Show. Les Trendall’s show was the first in BC to showcase the FFFT. A great showing for Sturgeon Slayers, Ruddocks Ranch and of course the FFFT. It was nice to see many faces I haven’t seen in a while at the show. Thanks again for stopping by. Thank you, Les for being the first to commit to us about 10 months ago to get the sportsmen shows rolling. Much Appreciated.

The tour continued back to Edmonton for the largest show in Western Canada. Over 50k people walked through the doors at Northlands. This 525k sq ft event is the largest by size in Canada. Again the amount of people was staggering and it was a positive experience for all those who attended. Through the 3 sportsmen shows we gave over $5000.00 away in prizes for those viewing the film tour. We would like to thank all of our sponsors for donating prizes and Country Pleasures for donating 2 guided trips for the Alberta Shows.

One observation which was very evident was the number of people checking out the Fly Fishing Section in these shows. Pieroway Rods did a great job with their casting pond in Calgary and Edmonton. Because of this they were able to attract people of all ages to learn how to cast. This was very positive and nice to see. It was also very cool seeing those in the industry work together! Pieroway and Sage shared the casting pond in Edmonton, of course it came down to who could put it in the cup first! I think Tommy T from Chromer Sport Fishing took that prize. So no bragging rights for the competing rod companies.

This week we are back to Alberta for the 4th time in 2 months. This time it’s for the Fishin Hole Outdoors Show. We will have our Ruddocks Ranch booth up and will be presenting the FFFT once a day for those who want to come check it out.

It has been a crazy couple of months and were are looking forward to hitting the water soon. We still have some spots left open for our Peter Morrison’s Fly Fishing Clinics at Ruddocks Ranch. Please email me if you are interested.

Again this year we are offering our Guaranteed catch for Sturgeon Fishing. This will be for the Lytton area. At least one per trip. We have been averaging between 5-20 per day in the area. The most staggering fact is that we are also averaging around 6 feet per fish. We are back in the canyon starting early April. Remember if you are shopping around nobody offers what we do on the river. Fact!! We do 10 hour guided trips,BBQ meals onboard or shoreside, CD in the mail with video and pics from the day and much more. Don’t compare apples to oranges when your looking to head out on the water.

What does all this mean? You get more value, and a complete guided experience. Show up, and we’ll take care of the rest. We look forward to having you out with us.
