WFN: World Fishing Network, the leading entertainment destination and digital resource for anglers throughout North America, airs an all-new original series, Beyond the Cast with JP DeRose, beginning Wednesday, Jan 30 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
“The premise of the show is to move past the marketing slogans and flashy advertising and tackle the facts on the gear,” said JP DeRose. “It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the vast selection of gear in today’s marketplace and find the best value for your hard-earned dollar; I want the audience to learn about everything they need to know both before and beyond the cast.”
Each episode, JP and his team of gear testers are out to put today's fishing products to task. They’ll scrutinize and evaluate some of the best-in-class fishing gear, including rods, reels, lures and accessories. Products similar in function and price range will be evaluated on performance, quality and durability by the panel with JP designing each controlled test and making sure it’s properly conducted. JP will be on the water each episode, giving viewers the opportunity to learn proper technique application with some valuable pointers and helpful tips related to the category of products being rated.
Beyond the Cast with JP DeRose, encourages interaction; anglers can contribute their personal reviews on Beyond the Cast online forums as well as Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/BeyondTheCast) and Twitter (@Beyond_the_Cast).
Added DeRose: “I want to encourage anglers to share their hands-on experience with the gear we’re testing on the show; we want to know what he or she thinks of it. Good, bad or indifferent, Beyond the Cast is going to provide honest, unfiltered opinions on the equipment out in the marketplace.”
JP DeRose, familiar to viewers as the host of Getting School’d, which has aired on WFN the past four seasons, has been fishing for nearly 30 years – 11 competitively and six professionally – and has 130 Top 10 and 30 tournament wins to his credit over the past 11 years.
