AMI.Ca now has a link to the TV special on my Yukon adventure, but lots didn’t make the final cut.
AMI TV and I put our heads together and came up with an idea for a TV special called “Postcards from the Yukon”.
The Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) Documentary Channel has licensed my documentary “What Lies Below”.
Craig asked me to come on his show for a 23-minute interview as he recognized my story was unique.
Every year volunteers from Blue Fish Canada work hard to take young people fishing.
The following multi-part news coverage includes three components intended to inform the public about the impacts on fish health of toxins in Canada’s water

The following links to an article I wrote for the spring 2016 issue of Outdoor Canada Magazine. It addresses how aquariums are actively ensuring the future of both fish and fishing. Not only do they support fishing, but they depend on anglers and fishers to collect important data, make observations, volunteer for various initiatives, and implement their tools and research trials.

CBC Radio One asked if I would talk about fishing the morning of the family free fishing day in Ontario. The following is the audio recording from the In Town and Out episode that aired the morning of July 2, 2016.
The interview was recorded along the shore of the Rideau River, a favorite place for Moby and I to go and very near our home.
I think this producer / radio host really got what I’m trying to get across to the public, which is sustainable fishing. The message is a positive one and really shows anglers as ready and willing to approach their sport in an ethical way – one that’s respectful of the resource, and one that will help ensure the practice of fishing and harvesting wild fish will continue for many future generations.
Accessible Media Inc. broadcasts over cable TV and satellite into over 5-million Canadian households. Andrew Morris, one of AMI’s young innovative producers, contacted me and asked if I would film a series of 2-4 minute TV interstitials for AMI TV. Interstitials are like commercials in that they are played between regular program offerings, but different in that they are primarily for conveying information and not to sell. I agreed, and came up with 20 possible options. We settled on 14.
Over a period of six days I filmed 14 Feel the Bite interstitials – often as many as three in a day. Each interstitial includes me and my guide dog Moby exploring a different way of fishing for a variety of fish species, and conveying general information about fish, their biology and habitat, and environmental pressures that are impacting on their viability. We also included stewardship tips.
The interstitials are now available for your viewing pleasure via YouTube. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did doing the researching, writing and filming. Visit www.LawrenceGunther.com to access the shows directly, or search on YouTube.
