2014 Preview

Published on Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

2013 was yet another memorable year on Fishing with Rod. The arrival of our son meant we had to change our work pace completely to accommodate the new lifestyle. The biggest challenge was to ensure that our website content, particular video content, continued to grow. We managed to do that and the result was yet another year of growth beyond our expectation.

Our YouTube channel gained over 10,000 new subscribers and the videos were viewed over 2 million times. This kind of support motivates me to keep bringing quality content to our audience so you can enjoy, learn and experience the fisheries British Columbia has to offer.

We’ll once again continue the momentum in 2014. With the support from GoFishBC and several other returning and new sponsors, we’ll take you to some new fisheries which we have not covered in the past. This year will also see more collaboration in instructional videos between myself and other fishing guides who are much more knowledgable when it comes to some fishing techniques.

Many thanks to all of you for continuously supporting! Stay tuned for new content coming up in February. If you have any questions or feedbacks, you are always welcome to contact us.

2013 Chilliwack River Clean-ups

2013 Chilliwack River Clean-ups

Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society has finalized this year’s river clean-up dates with the City of Chilliwack and Fraser Valley Regional District. They are:

  • April 20th at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve
  • July 20th at the Great blue Heron Nature Reserve
  • September 29th at the Chilliwack Fish and Games Club

This will be the twelfth year since we started the group. In 2012, participants racked up 2,464 volunteer hours, collecting 5.72 metric tonnes of garbage from the Chilliwack River. This shows the importance of having these clean-ups. Not only are we maintaining the Chilliwack River valley so it is a pristine recreational corridor for all to enjoy, we are also minimizing garbage from being washed into the Pacific Ocean. Please support these three clean-ups once again in 2013.

10,000 YouTube subscribers!

Published on Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Fishing with Rod reached a milestone today. Thanks to your support by watching our videos, subscribing to the channel and providing us with your feedbacks, Fishing with Rod is now the first Canadian fishing YouTube channel to reach 10,000 subscribers!

We started producing online video content in 2006 when YouTube first hit the internet. Our videos in the first few years were done on what was then a rather expensive DV camera. Since then, our videos have evolved to 1080p HD that can be viewed on your large screen television. Our goal has been to share our experience in fisheries that are family friendly, which you can also enjoy later on.

Many thanks to our commercial supporters last year, including Shimano Fishing, Islander Reels, Pautzke Bait, Yakima Bait and Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. Without their support, our video content could not have grown and improved.

This year, we will once again be producing long video blog episodes to show you different places to fish in British Columbia. There will be instructional videos as requested by many viewers.

To celebrate our milestone, we will be running some contest give-aways in the next several weeks, so please check our contest section often.
