Multiple 2021 episodes of the hit Outdoor Channel and syndicated TV series will include fly fishing showcases, including a 2-week expedition across the Amazon jungle and fresh and saltwater fishing in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
Sporting Classics with Chris Dorsey brings one of America’s greatest adventure magazines to the television space and showcases the planet’s most unforgettable hunting and fishing destinations. The series reached over 7 million viewers in its second season on Outdoor Channel and airs in syndication on 113 broadcast stations as well as several streaming and OTT platforms, giving it the largest footprint of any hunting-fishing television series in the world.. The series highlights the best in the outdoor space, including best in class sporting equipment like Sea Run luxury fly fishing cases.
"Arriving at a destination with damaged gear is always unacceptable, whether it is a piece of camera equipment of an 8-weight fly rod," says executive producer and host Chris Dorsey. "We always travel smart, and for a remote fishing shoot that means packing our fly rods and reels in a Sea Run case. They are gorgeous, lightweight and secure – when you travel with one of these, you know you fishing gear is going to arrive intact. No wonder Sea Run has established itself as the premiere luxury fly case in the category.
