We’ve been waiting to get the go ahead from some big-time, big shot, legal eagle kind of dude that most likely works in a really swanky office tower and wears fancy shoes with tassels. Starting December 30th, Facts of Fishing will be available to more US viewers than ever before as Outdoor Channel signs on to become our latest broadcast partner.
