Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.
In this episode, host Lawrence Gunter talks to Canadian canoeist, author and river conservationist Max Finkelstein (above). Few outdoor enthusiasts have accomplished anything close to what Finkelstein (above) has undertaken with a paddle and canoe. He has traversed Canada throughout the north, and led an expedition from Ottawa to Washington. Along the way he published two books about his adventures. Max is still at it, but took some time to share some of his hard-earned lessons in a two-part interview with Blue Fish Radio.
Blue Fish Radio host and producer Lawrence Gunther is North America’s only blind professional angler. He’s also the host of Lake2Plate TV and creator of the feature documentary What Lies Below. Lawrence’s fishing insight is informed by competing in over 100 competitive fishing tournaments, summers working as a commercial fisher on the North Atlantic, and time spent in Canada’s Arctic conducting research for his Masters degree. A leader in accessible technology and a recipient of awards including the Governor General’s Meritorious Service Metal, Lawrence also the President of Blue Fish Canada, a charity dedicated to the future of fish and fishing.
