Trout Unlimited’s TV show, On the Rise, resumes this week on the Sportsman’s Channel with new host Jed Fiebelkorn from Fly Fisherman TV (a show that may now be discontinued?). The first episode is on the Teton River in Idaho. The Teton holds Yellowstone cutthroat trout, as well as invasive rainbow and brook trout.
You can watch an extended trailer of the first On the Rise 2011 episode on YouTube.
I’m going to miss Frank Smethurst. I thought Frank was a great host for the show, seemed like a real nice guy with just enough irreverence but always polite and gracious with everyone he interviewed and fished with. Jed also seems like he’ll be a great host, and judging by watching his previous show, this guy is an awesome fly caster.
