New Berlin, WI – (November 16, 2011) In-Fisherman, notably the longest running and most watched fishing series on television, won another trophy for the mantel: Best Series – Education from the CableFAX Program Awards. The awards were recently held in Hollywood, Ca. In-Fisherman beat out two HGTV programs to win the top spot. The CableFAX Program awards is devoted to cable’s top shows, people and entertainment icons.
CableFAX said of In-Fisherman, …”it’s so good that the show has produced 42 seasons. That is not a typo! This really is a go-to place for the hardcore fisherman (or fisherwoman), tackling everything from lures to sound and vibration for big fish. We can’t promise that merely watching will guarantee hooking a whopper, but it might give you some new ideas for casting your line.”
“The entire In-Fisherman staff is humbled by this recognition,” said Steve Hoffman, publisher of In-Fisherman. “Helping people catch more fish and have more fun on the water has been our constant mission for more than 40 years, and being recognized as a television leader in education is the best praise that we could hope for.”
Famous around the world for tackling every species of freshwater fish, the distinguished In-Fisherman staff leads viewers on unforgettable journeys to the best fishing spots in North America and beyond. Variety is the key to the success and popularity of In-Fisherman, as the talented team captures the best fishing action on television.
