**********

Elise Campbell , President of CameraCats Productions, is pleased to announce a new partnership with RDO TV in production of season two of the television show Fishing With The Dodger.

Calgary-based CameraCats Productions is now at the helm, designing a new look and show line-up as well as overseeing several new segments designed to make the show appeal to an even wider audience.  Advanced anglers will revel in the glory of the grand catches of the day; novices will quickly pick up on tips and product demonstrations. The show also incorporates a ‘kid’s eye’ view with Connor’s Corner, a youth segment hosted by The Dodger’s son Connor (a.k.a. Dodger Jr.), while the Fly Grrrl segment profiles the top female anglers of the sport.  We’re going to make fly-fishing the new passion!

The show follows the adventures of Michael Gelinas, A-K-A “The Dodger”. Once a VP for a major communications company, he now spends his days fly-fishing in the most beautiful places in the world. As host of Fishing With The Dodger, he takes the audience along, exploring the scenery, taking in local folklore, and reeling in the ‘big ones’ of Alberta, British Columbia and New Zealand. All fish caught are expertly released, promoting conservation.

Watch the Season Two premiere at noon, April 1 on CITY TV.  Come fly with us!
