Mr. Italo the Dofasco angling meeting in December was the first time I met yourself and your wife in person. Very surreal having watched Canadian Sport Fishing since I was knee high to a grasshopper. It has come to this… I live in a nice home and work at a job that pays the bills but I am not pursuing my so called passion. I know what it is frequently having to ask loved ones but seem to be losing the vision getting blindsided by the big machine. I need to start living a fruitful enjoyable life and stop watching it slip by as I want to start reaching for my dreams again and feeling good about myself. I would love nothing more then to be immersed involved and surrounded by my passion on a daily basis not just a few times a year when I get a chance to get away. I am committed have the right attitude reliable dependable and can provide a spectacular service in anything I do. I would appreciate some insightdirection on how to start or get my foot in the door with a opportunity in fishing conservation habitat restoration in the field or cleaning the office garbage cans. My search has been fruitless at best. This is a far fetch but I figured you could appreciate where I am coming from. I am not afraid of hard work. This is me and root for my problem having grown up and learning my life lessons from the trees waterits slippery inhabitants rocks and solitude of the unfailing north.. I pursued a BS in geography and attained my degree but have yet to get an opportunity. All I have is love passion and an unbelievable work ethic and drive to be great and impress. Please any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time andI am sure you would understand the pull toward a new direction.

Hi Ryan…There are so many different opportunities to work in the fishing area ranging from owning/operating a fishing service (could be a guiding/charter service, running a lodge, tackle store, etc.), to working in the fishing industry (fishing disctributers, fishing factory reps, etc.). In my case I had a real passion for fishing from the age of 12. After graduating from high school I became a Fish & Wildlife Technician graduating from Sir Sanford Fleming College, Frost Campus in Lindsay, ON. After graduating I worked fo the Ontario MInistry of Natural Resources for a few years, than opened a tackle & taxidermy business. Eventually the opportunity came up to start a fishing TV show back in the mid-80’s. At that time the only TV show that was on was the Red Fisher Show. Today there are so many fishing TV shows and anyone can really produce a show with all the hi-tech equipement available (iPhone, GoPro, etc.), but the competition is so large it’s tough to getting uand tougher to get sponsors, or networks that will air a TV show. I believe firmly that if you truly have a passion in an area, and you persue it, you can make your dreams come true….God bless you, Italo
