When I was a kid I was glued to the set whenever Jerry McKinnis and the Fishin Hole would come on. Bill Dance was always a hoot. My Grandpa turned me on to Gaddabout Gaddis the Flying Fisherman. Cool old show. I also dug Mark Sosin's saltwater journal and Flip Pallot's Walkers Cay Chronicles. I know of Fishing the West but that didn't air down here I don't believe.

Fishing the West, Jim Conway and American Sportsman.
Also like Exploration NW not so much because of fishing but they went a lot of cool places.

Fishing the West was a little bit phony. Sometimes Larry would reel in a coat hanger. Others he would get handed a fish already on the line. But he did go to Northwest places. I really like Jerry McKinnis because of his enthusiasm. Jim Conway was a pioneer, and I met him once when he was trolling for springers near Kalama.

Roland Martin, Still to this day I watch him. He has a pretty neat YouTube chanel that shows the old timer can still crush some largies.
Ooooohh SON that's a big bass.

Yes Fred, I remember your Fishing The West program with Larry Schoenborn. You were fishing the WF of the Humptulips for steelhead. I remember you got a nice fish about 16 lbs . You and Larry caught a couple of other fish also. I think I still have that episode on an old VHS tape somewhere. I think you were guiding then. Great show.

Mine, too, Curt. Particularly Sports Afield. Followed Jason Lucas, who as it turns out, was a an avid fly-flinger even though he wrote a lot about basin'. SA got me hooked, too, on Russell Annabell's stories of AK and Mexico fishing and hunting.

I made the same VHS tape.....because I fished that part of the river, the "holes" were ones I remembered.....fun times, could make the float and not see another boat.....the good old days!!!!!

Same here, great episode. A couple of exchanges between Fred and Larry were hilarious - like the one when Fred told Larry he was getting a bite, Larry saying no kidding?, then seeing Larry's reaction when his line came up tight with a fish. I think Larry actually points to that fish swimming upriver not realizing he had it hooked. Another funny moment was watching Larry reel backwards with a spinning reel with a fish on. Maybe it was deliberate, but I'd never seen that before. Great show, with no blaring garage-band rock guitar playing in the background either!

I didn't know about any fishing shows on TV when I was a kid, if there were any. And yes, we did have TV back then, altho it was black and white. My hunting and fishing dreams were whetted by reading Outdoor Life and Sports Afield.

There is a guy on youtube that went through all the old episodes and digitally remastered them and uploaded each one. Im sure if you take a minute and poke around you can find it. Very cool stuff. Thanks for sharing.

As someone who's had the pleasure of fishing with fp (as crew; not the captain), and someone who has never known the West Fork Humptulips to have catchable numbers of steelhead in it, I would LOVE to see that video. Anyone out there with a copy and the chops to digitize it?

Did a quick search on YouTube. There are a lot of episodes listed. Many by guests name. Who are we looking for?

FP I also remember you fishing the west fork with Larry. I know this because we were right behind you and my partner went under our drift boat when he tried to climb in the bow while the boat was moving.
Those days are gone but the memories are here to stay. "use to be"

I finally realized the reason I couldn't remember a favorite fishing TV from when I was growing up - there weren't any.

My first introduction to the outdoor related media was as a pre-teen when a neighbor off loaded boxes of old Outdoor Life magazines on me. Kept me busy for months with an emphasis on Jack O'Conner. Very sorry that during my years at WSU there was never an opportunity to meet the man who lived just to the south in Lewiston, ID.

But let me toss out a local media fishing "celebrity" name.....Enos Bradner.
