This channel called the World Fishing Network has a show called “Hookin’ Up With Mariko Izumi,” and it starts its third season on Monday at 4:30 p.m.
“With her rod, reel and bikini packed, Mariko Izumi is once again traveling the globe in pursuit of fishy adventures,” says the WFN press release, which also refers to her as “the world’s sexiest angler.”
Her 2010-2011 travel dossier: Boca Grande, Fla.; Ocean City, Maryland, Toronto, Lake Powell, Ariz., St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, Cabo San Lucas in Mexico; Langara Island in British Columbia, Canada, Atlanta and Denver.
The Nov. 15 episode, for example, takes her to her hometown of Toronto in celebrating Canada Day and fishing for salmon with her dad and best friend.
Launched in December 2005, WFN is in about 20 million homes. Maybe after this blog post, it’ll be 20 million and one.
