The Dimestore Fishermen attends Lac La Biche July 29 – August 1, 2016 to get in the spirit of Pow Wow Days.  The guys also did some fishing on Lac La Biche.

Jim Hoey, host of The Dimestore Fishermen said “we really have had a super time at Pow Wow Days.  We watched a great band on Friday night at the Kingdom tent and also had a chance to film some rodeo and witness a triathlon on Churchill Island.  One of our major supporters Kingdom Cats did a super job supporting the whole event as the major sponsor.  Jason King at Kingdom Cats always participates in helping in the community.  He is a really great Canadian.”  When asked about the fishing Jim said “Barry Feledichuk took us out on Lac La Biche.  He is well known in the community.  He and his wife, Donna have taken us out in the past.  We caught some beauties on the lake.  I would also like to thank  BCM Inns, Eric Deevy and all our friends at Boston Pizza for the great treatment while we have been here.  Both are wonderful supporters and we always love to come here.  The Moghrabi family at Lac La Biche Sporting Goods is a major supporter for us as well.  We dropped by and said hello to Albert and the team.  Barry bought his boat from Albert and Lac La Biche Sporting Goods has been in business for over 40 years for a reason.  Awesome store.  Everyone is treated special when they come through the doors.  It’s a small town difference.”

The Dimestore Fishermen attends the City of Oshawa for Canada Day week of June 29 – July 3, 2016 to film a feature episode 

Host Jim Hoey said “This attendance was a great deal of fun.  We had a lot of fun visiting Lakeview park to get some fun Canada Day footage.  This community is a super place.  The people here have embraced us from the moment we arrived.  Our team at the City of Oshawa have been a lot of fun to spend time with.   The Lord of the Kings Charters group has put us into some amazing fish.  Vitto is a great fisherman.  We have also had the chance to visit with the Mayor.  He is a really engaged person.  I love it when you meet a Mayor that loves their hometown.”

The Dimestore Fishermen

Our program has been in production for 17 years and broadcasting for 16 years all over our great country and the world. To date, we have only ever filmed in Canada. We have been in every province and territory. Typically, we film enough content for 13-16 feature episodes every year. We spend 5-6 days in a Canadian community during an event or festival in order to capture the spirit of the location we are visiting. It has been shared with us that we could quite possibly be the longest standing wholly owned independent television production in the history of our province. While that is quite a milestone, we are busy working hard all of the time to continue our tradition. We are proudly Canadian.
