Fishing Behind the Lines: Season 2, with host Don Meissner, is a series with the premise to take a Soldier fishing and in the process, use fishing as a recreation.
In each episode, active duty and retired servicemen and women share their experiences in the military, while fishing is introduced as a natural way to relieve stress and features one of the most popular outdoor activities. Fishing Behind the Lines, Season 2, tells their stories, from their lives serving in the United States Military and Canadian Forces, and their overall life experiences.
Each episode highlights active duty or retired service members from different branches of the military, including the Coast Guard. Host, Don Meissner, and his guests enjoy a day of fishing in one of the Great Lakes, regional streams, or rivers. The series will do much to link the military and civilian communities, and foster national pride.
This series can be used and adopted with a local campaign by PBS stations nationwide as a tool for integrating military families into the communities they are stationed in by promoting the great outdoors as well as other things to see and do close to home.
