How he fought the law to keep fishing along Toronto's shorelines
Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.
In this episode of Blue Fish Radio, Lawrence Gunther interviews bass pro, guide, angling advocate (and enthusiastic Twitter user) David Chong.
Best known as a pioneer of many new bass techniques—one of which nabbed him an 8.2 pound smallmouth in October 2014—Chong is also a versatile mulit-species angler who can often be found shore fishing around Toronto. And he was a leading voice of reason when, several years ago, the city tried to ban angling along its expansive waterfront. Here Chong chats about the pleasures and challenges of fishing in the city, and offers some great tips for urban anglers.
