Feel the Bite Fishing Videos and Accessible Media Inc.

Accessible Media Inc. broadcasts over cable TV and satellite into over 5-million Canadian households.

Blue Fish Radio Now on iTunes!

Some time ago I made the decision to let others take the credit for bringing Blue Fish Radio to the listening audience.

Not always an easy sell. Remembrances of prior frigidly cold fishless days always seem to get rekindled, and […]

On Ice with Your 4-Legged Friend

Whether or not to bring your 4-legged best friend for some on-ice fun can pose some ethical issues. Sure it’s fun to have your dog with you, but will the pup manage the cold? Face facts, for most of us are dogs have grown use to indoor climates and don’t necessarily grow the sorts of […]
