Jim Hoey of The Dimestore Fishermen had this to say about the experience “We would like to thank the Plummer family, Chuk Coulter and our friends at NWT Tourism for making this such a special experience.  We really had an amazing trip and the Plummer’s team is really amazing at what they do.  Big time thanks to Chris, Garnett, Vince and Jordan our guides for doing a really tremendous job.  Our footage will be coming out soon on Youtube Stories @dimestorenation and our episodes will be in our 20th season and 21st season of the program.”

The Dimestore Fishermen

Our program has been in production for 21 years and broadcasting for 20 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.
