Excitement was high last Monday afternoon as local fishermen and fishing enthusiasts watched the trailers, belonging to none other than the Real Fishing Show’s host Bob Izumi, roll into town. The Canadian star and fishing personality along with his brother Wayne Izumi and highly acclaimed writer of Outdoors Photography, James Smedley, have made their way to Cochrane to test the waters of the Abitibi Lake.
WONDERFULLY UNEXPECTED AUTOGRAPHS
The three joined with local fans and Mayor Politis, at the Polar Bear Habitat for a friendly meet and greet, signing autographs and taking pictures. The guests had a chance to tour the world renown tourist center, and talk to locals about their experiences. It was a quick but well-anticipated event!
LATE SEASON ICE FISHING AT ITS BEST
The Real Fishing Show will showcase late season ice fishing, unique to Northeastern Ontario as the fishing season is extended to April 15. Having run for more than 30 years, the show has become a true Canadian classic. It is an exciting opportunity to watch the outdoor culture that belongs primarily to Northern Ontario being represented to Canadians everywhere!
