Video: If You Love Ice Fishing…

…watch this video, then give silent thanks to The Man—the First Gentleman of the Ice, Dave Genz.

I have the immeasurable pleasure of knowing Dave Genz for 20 some years and have fished with him numerous times, on hard water and soft. Over the course of time, I’ve heard many, many of his stories, but in watching the video below I learned things about him I never knew before.

Make no mistake, this incredible production, by the Ice Team is a promotional video, but remember that a lot, and I mean a lot of the things you’ll see were invented, developed or improved by the Godfather himself. And that includes vintage shots of a few of the very first Fish Trap flip-over shelters he ever built.

P.S. Do you know that North American Fisherman has an online store?
