Mike MitchellMike Mitchell’s love for fishing started young when he would go on fishing trips with his family to some of British Columbia’s spectacular freshwater lakes.  Born and raised in BC, this province fueled his passion for the outdoors.  Mike became involved with BC Outdoors Magazine in 2005, becoming Editor in 2007.  Three years after that, Mike started the BC Outdoors Sport Fishing TV show and continues today as Host and Executive Producer.  Mike created the show to highlight all of the best fresh and saltwater fisheries around BC while educating viewers on how and what to use to be successful during their day out on the water.  Each episode features local industry experts as co-hosts and utilizes their know-how to teach the audience trade secrets.  The show breaks down the components of fishing for the audience to a basic level, from strategy and technique to gear and species knowledge.  While the main focus of the show is informing and educating the audience, BC Outdoors Sport Fishing is produced to inspire viewers to get out fishing more often and appreciate the great outdoors, while enjoying a true angling experience.In addition to accomplishing all of that, in 2012, BC Outdoors Sport Fishing TV received the Grizzly Award for the Fan Favorite TV show on Wild TV!

Mike has a competitive spirit as well, which drives him while out on the water with co-hosts, many times having their own fishing competitions just for fun.  But that’s Mike, he’s a fun guy!  Mike believes in helping out with charities and sports leagues, from Ducks Unlimited Canada to coaching kids hockey, ball hockey, softball and football.  And if this isn’t enough, he’s also an amazing dad to 3 great kids and loves spending time with them.

To see Mike in action, check out the BC Outdoors Sport Fishing TV show on Chek TV, Wild TV, WFN, CFTK, CJDC and Coast TV.

Dylan EyersFor Dylan Eyers, hunting has always been about two things: creating a community around food and connecting with nature. It’s a philosophy he picked up from a long line of hunters, and it’s one that he’s proud to pass on to new generations. Dylan is a Park Ranger, and EatWild Hunting Guide and Mentor.

With a growing interest in learning to hunt from folks from non-traditional hunting communities, there is a gap in mentorship and support for this growing community.  Dylan established  EatWild in 2011 to support non-traditional hunters to find their way to becoming ethical, safe and successful hunters. Dylan shares his knowledge and passion for hunting through his workshops, with “how-to-hunt” videos on YouTube,  the EatWild Hunting App, and is still trying to get his audio figured out for the EatWild Podcast.

“The most challenging thing is getting out in the wilderness and getting the skills and confidence you need to figure out how the animals live and how to harvest them,” says Dylan. Developing those skills can take years, but it’s always worth it in the end.”

About EatWild:

EatWild wants to change the way you think about your food. Our mission is to develop a community of food-conscious people, who value high quality, organic and ethically sourced game meat and fish. Our goal is to get you excited about learning where your food comes from, and how it was treated along the way. We want to share great adventures and delicious meals, and inspire a new generation of urban folks to get back to the wilderness.

We offer workshops and courses for new hunters to build the confidence and skills to ethically harvest wild animals. From butchering workshops to backpack hunter workshops, we have you covered to develop the essential skills to be successful, and we will introduce you to a community of like-minded folks who are passionate about hunting and adventures in the wild.

Rod TothRod Toth, more humorously known as “Bent Rod” is a fishing guide and self made tackle manufacturer, based in Chilliwack BC. He specializes in seeking new and effective strategies for catching Salmon and Steelhead on the rivers of the Fraser Valley. Attaining his knowledge through obsessive readings, field testing, and fishermen’s feedback, he then designs and creates Jigs and Spinners to meet the needs of BC’s most elusive and hard fighting fish.

Rod started applying the TWITCHING Jig technique for Pink Salmon over 15 years ago, which lead to his discovery of the effectiveness of twitching jigs for so many other species!

Join Rod as he covers a broad spectrum “HOW-TO” of Twitching Jigs for Pinks, Coho, Chinook, Bull Trout, and Steelhead. Bring your questions and personal experiences! Tight Lines & Bent Rods!
