Don Freschi has been hosting Sport Fishing on the Fly for over 25 years. He is an accomplished fly fisherman and fly tyer, with over 35 years of experience. Trail, British Columbia is where he was born and raised, and is the home base of operations for the show. Many episodes are filmed in and around the West and East Kootenays, and Kamloops region. One of the most popular aspects of Sport Fishing on the Fly is the “On the Bench” segment in which Don selects a fly that was effective for that particular show, and then walks the viewer through the tying process. Rivers, lakes, and the open ocean, Don fishes them all, always with the intent to entertain and educate the viewer. He has caught fish all over North America and the world, and has been featured in fly fishing magazines, presented at numerous fly fishing events, and produced and hosted a number of fly fishing and fly tying DVD’s.
