Outdoor Channel Asia Ventures into Local Production


SINGAPORE: Marking its foray into local production, Outdoor Channel in Asia has commissioned a miniseries with fishing tips and insights presented by YouTube personality Luke Maow Bear.

The series will debut next month on Outdoor Channel. It will feature Maow Bear, who also owns and operates the fishing enthusiast website FishingKaki.com and is an extreme angler.

Gregg Creevey, the managing director of Multi Channels Asia, said, “We are excited to work with Luke to present this miniseries to our viewers, which also marks an important milestone for Outdoor Channel’s commitment to the Asian outdoor lifestyle and angling community. Some of the world’s best fishing destinations are located in Asia, with many of the world’s great river systems, seas and oceans brimming with amazing aquatic life. Whether in Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Sri Lanka or Australia, there are plenty of unique places and people to feature.”

Maow Bear added, “I have been a massive fan of Outdoor Channel since I saw the channel on my angling travels a couple years back. It gives me real pleasure that I am able to be the voice for Asian anglers and have the opportunity to share my passion with Outdoor Channel’s viewers across the region. I have been able to travel and fish in some of the most exotic locations across the region in pursuit of all sorts of catches—from Siamese Carp, Arapaima, Blue Marlin, Broadbill Swordfish, Sailfish, Yellowfin and Dogtooth Tuna and Giant Trevally, and I am excited to share some of my great exploits and tips with my fellow fishing enthusiasts.”
