   05.29.14

World Fishing Network, the leading entertainment destination and digital resource for anglers throughout North America, delivers the latest episode of its signature magazine format show, World Fishing Journal, on Sunday, June 1 starting at 11:30 a.m. ET.

World Fishing Journal brings together a roster of talented sports producers to craft engaging, story-driven features based around the angling community and fishing industry on a monthly basis. Episode 9 presents three unique segments:

Teardown : It’s one of the most important times of the year for fishing lodges – those crucial few days at the end of the season when things are cleaned up, put away and tied down so nothing is damaged by animals or the elements over the long, cold winter. Ed and Sue Crane, proprietors of Crane’s Lochaven Wilderness Lodge, have plenty to do before they leave their island lodge on the French River in Ontario, Canada. In Part One of this two-part feature, we’ll get a rare, behind-the-scenes glimpse of the incredible workload that has to take place before they say goodbye to Crane’s Lochaven Wilderness Lodge until the spring.

The Sea to The Strip : You might not expect to get fresh seafood in the desert, but with the award-winning dining options available in Las Vegas, you almost forget that The Strip is hundreds of miles away from the ocean.  Experience the process of how your succulent seafood dinner travels from sea to plate.  With a little help from celebrity chefs like Emeril Lagasse and Rick Moonen, we’ll learn how it’s possible to get fresh, high-quality fish options in Las Vegas.   With a staggering 1.5 million tons of fresh and frozen salmon consumed annually as well as 60,000 pounds of shrimp consumed on a daily basis, it’s no wonder that Las Vegas is rapidly becoming a world-class culinary destination.

High School Fishing: Fishing is fast becoming the high school sport of choice for many teenagers. Throughout the U.S., young anglers, with a little help from parents, friends and sponsors, are starting up competitive fishing teams. Students who aren’t involved in what could be considered to be more ‘traditional’ sports and love fishing can now put on uniforms and represent their school at a variety of competitive angling events.
