Some of you may have World Fishing Network. Some of you don’t. Others may have never heard of it. I’m in the second category. I don’t have it. But thanks to press releases sent to me by WFN’s PR department, I have definitely heard of it. I posted the press release touting the 2nd season of Hookin’ Up with Mariko Izumi earlier this year, and when I received one promoting the 3rd season premiering on Monday, I figured I should be consistent.
So without further ado, I give you a picture of the lovely Mariko.
And here’s the press release.

If you have a chance to watch this show, let me know how it is. Maybe I’ll even let you do a guest column to review it.
