For our 2016 Fishing Special issue, Outdoor Canada recruited a supergroup of acclaimed Canadian recording artists, who also happen to be hard-core anglers. And these fishin’ musicians agreed to sing about their favourite Canadian fishing holes—74 in all. For the full list, see The Fishin’ Musicians.
A rising star in Canada’s country music scene, Codie Prevost earned rave reviews for his third studio album, 2014’s All Kinds of Crazy, which also won the Western Canadian Music Award for Country Recording of the Year. Critics have praised his relatable songwriting and his strong, earnest voice as “uniquely Canadian.” Something else uniquely Canadian about Prevost is his love of fishing, which he took up in his teens. Showing that you can take the angler out of Saskatchewan but you can’t take Saskatchewan out of the angler, Prevost has a particular affection for prairie ice fishing, especially for northern pike and walleye.
