Bob Izumi's Visit!

Real Fishing!

Bob Izumi “Real Fishing”

Bob Izumi is a professional Canadian angler, his love affair with the world of fishing began as a youngster. Bob came from a large family, growing up in Blenheim, Ontario. His Dad started the first Canadian Bass Tournment, and both Bob and his brother Wayne were naturals at the sport and went on to win many tournaments over the years, in fact, winning more competitions then anyone else.

At a family picnic, a family member brought up the possibility of him starting a fishing television show. Izumi had been hired to do seminars before that time, and the thought of a television show intrigued him. He filmed a pilot episode, and the show was soon picked up by various networks in 1983. The show is still produced and runs on many networks, including WFN and Global Television Network.

And so it was born, BOB IZUMI, REAL FISHING!!

This summer the Mattawa River Resort had the opportunity to host Bob and his television crew, as they filmed new episodes of “Real Fishing”…We want to thank Bob for his utilizing our resort and his kind words of support, and we are also grateful for the time we spent with Bob and his TV crew, it was a blast.

We wanted to share with you some photos from that visit…
