So I just heard Bob is wrapping up his show after 38 years.
I spent many Saturday mornings watching him and always enjoyed his enthusiasm.
He will be missed but looks like he is moving on to other things on his terms.
Best of Luck Bob if you're listening.

That's too bad, if it's true. I like Bob's show a lot better than Italo's incessant drone....loves the sound of his own voice I think!

I will also miss his voice on his Saturday morning show.
He was good at it.
We can't blame him for wanting to be closer to his grandson, that is for sure.

Cheers,

Ran into Bob many times, fishing store's and Costco lol..
Always a class act and always had something for us, magazines, hats and stories.
Bobs niece Mariko has a great show that's on Saturdays at 8:30am..

Definitely going to miss his show. Very nice man for sure. Fished with him once on Simcoe when he was filming a perch show. Enjoy your time off Bob!

Loved watching Bob's show growing up and was a pleasure to meet him in person at the Toronto Sportsmen's Show. Even signed a hat for me!

Its looks like his niece's show has taken his sunday morning time slot. Not sure if I like the editing of her show, very gloomy and not very upbeat.

Ya, definitely not the same as having Bob there. Tried to watch it last week and this morning, I think can make sleeping in a habit. That Charlie Wray, in his Princecraft boat with a Merc and his air chair, and this type of rod & reel with special line is nothing but advertising. Unfortunate but that's what it has come to. Used to be fun to watch Babe Winkelman, Bill Dance and a few of his antics.

Always Loved "Going Fishing" with Darryl Choronzey.
Such a simple show and theme song, more entertainment than educational.

He always did a shore lunch which was a big part of fishing when I was growing up.

I tried to watch Mariko's show and couldn't do it. Her old show on WFN was semi watchable but I just find her nauseating on this new one.

Wouldn't want to ruin those saturday morning pancakes watching her.
