Amongst the different awards and accreditations Jim has earned, he is grateful to have earned the prestigious praise of his peers for his achievements in the outdoors. He likes to spend time with charities, non profits and different causes domestically and globally. Jim lives in Calgary with his wife Shannon and children Scott, Jessica and Hayden.

“I have been very lucky to have so many great people with me on this journey. We started this thing so that people from different reaches of Canada could relate the fishing in their home communities to other enthusiastic fishers who reside in Canada and beyond. I dreamed of traveling Canada and filming as far back as I can remember. The relationships I have formed with people from all over our country are very special to me. Many years ago a remarkable Canadian told me that if I meant to do my job well I would never be far from a warm meal and a place to rest my head at night. That has proven to be true. As long as God gives me health I will continue to make our program.  We are so lucky as Canadians to have true Canadian access programming.  We love making our show.”

"The FORGED® reels handled flawlessly! The drag is smooth and consistent. Casting 10 wts all day for musky is not for the faint of heart and the lightweight FORGED® reels allow our clients to stay in the pocket longer with less fatigue and less loss of form in their casting!"                                                           Captain Josh Laferty - TEAM ROCK ON!
