The Dimestore Fishermen crew attends Terrace, BC April 15 – April 21, 2017 to film steelhead fishing with SuperGuide Dakota Mercer.  Richard Wilby from Forged Fly Fishing joined the guys for some awesome fishing on the Kitimat River.  

Jim Hoey, host of The Dimestore Fishermen said “Anytime we get to fish for Steelhead there are some guys with big smiles plastered on their faces.  We went out early every morning.  Dakota really knew his stuff.  The Town of Terrace is really renowned for steelhead fishing and this trip was spectacular.”  When asked about the fishing Jim said “Steelhead are powerful and graceful.  The rivers up in this region of Canada are pristine and peaceful.  Long casts to powerful, waiting trout kind of describe the anticipation the angler experiences with each and every cast.  Having our friend Richard join D’Arcy and I from Forged Fly Fishing was amazing.  The team at Pieroway Rod Company Canada provided us with some awesome rigs to use while on location.”  Look for this explosive feature episode in the future on The Dimestore Fishermen.

The Dimestore Fishermen attends Supreme Men’s Fashions & Footwear in Calgary, Alberta to produce footage that transforms Jim from rugged outdoors man to a business ready Canadian man. 

Host Jim Hoey said “We decided to have some fun with the new 19th season of the show.  There are some really cool production plans for this season and this attendance is a part of that.  Darren Biedermann & his team of amazing people at Supreme Men’s Fashions & Footwear in Calgary hosted us for a shoot.  Our team produced footage that will surprise our viewers and also provide some fun footage for Supreme’s online initiatives.  Supreme Men’s is a staple of Calgary fashion culture.  They have been in business since 1948 and this team is the best at what they do.  We are very proud that they are supporters of our program.  Rob Nicholl is a custom suit and fashion specialist for Supreme and Emily was an amazing support for all of us.  We have yet to re attend for final fitting day.  Brian Skinner & Sam Wahay also attended for photography. Definitely a great day had by all.  Stay tuned for the next instalment where they actually tune me up and make me look presentable.”

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.
