Officials from Orion Entertainment have announced that the Ultimate Fishing Lodge will premiere on the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) network at 7pm Eastern on Father’s Day. The one-hour special is hosted by country music star Trace Adkins and follows the build of a spectacular fishing lodge located at the famed Deep Water Cay in the Bahamas. The special showcases the many elements of the lodge–outfitted in consultation with Orvis–as well as the many challenges of building on a remote island. During the build process, the team faced a hurricane and other storms, challenges in getting supplies and materials, and even in moving construction crews to the remote outpost.
“This is a dream lodge in an even dreamier location,” says Orion Entertainment president Chris Dorsey. “Thanks to this program those who come to visit Deep Water will have a new appreciation for all the effort and challenges faced to create such a spectacular destination.”
