A lifelong passion for fishing and a career commentating at major sporting events like the Bassmaster Classic, X Games and Olympics has given, Ultimate Fishing Experience Founder, Keith Alan the opportunity to travel to some of the best fishing destinations in the world to fish with some of the top anglers in the country.
Keith wanted to share those great fishing experiences and destinations so he created "Ultimate Fishing Experience" to give others the chance to get in the boat and go fishing with the Pro Anglers they see on TV. After getting The Experience established Keith decided it was time to do something significant with it, and in his blog, he offered to give away some fishing trips to Heroes. After a flood of nominations poured in, Keith knew he had to do more. The goal became to not only recognize as many Heroes as possible, but also to do something that would have a positive impact on their lives.
After partnering with his friend, Emmy Award winning Director/Producer Jason Wald, the two created the Ultimate Fishing Experience TV Series, which joins the NBC Sports Network's Primetime line-up this January. Keith states, "Jason is not only very talented, he has an amazing energy around him. We are both very passionate about our families, our projects and fishing. Our backgrounds and skill sets compliment each other very well."
The show features truest of American Heroes who have made unimaginable sacrifices, and illustrates the therapeutic value fishing has on the wounds of war. The goal is to deliver their compelling stories, and to create something that has a redeeming value that transcends the broadcast.
The show will not only impact the lives of the guest Heroes in the show, but it will also touch many others by featuring organizations and groups that support Hero's needs. In conjunction with the broadcast, UltimateFishingExperience.com will provide resources and links for individuals and groups to both seek and provide support for the non-profit organizations featured in the show.
