New Seattle sports radio adds fishing show

This came from the new 710 AM ESPN radio station in Seattle. Next Saturday at this time, 6 AM tune in for "The Outdoor Line":

Bonneville Seattle Radio Group today announced “The Outdoor Line” will be added to the Saturday programming line-up for its new, all-sports radio station, 710 ESPN Seattle, launching next Monday, April 6th.

The Outdoor Line, hosted by former Seahawks Pro-Bowler and tournament angler Robbie Tobeck, fisheries biologist Tom Nelson and veteran fishing guide and charter captain Rob Endsley, will air Saturdays from 6am – 8:30am, beginning April 11th, 2009. The show will discuss recreational opportunities available for Pacific Northwest outdoor enthusiasts thru a unique blend of fishing, hunting, and sports talk.

A stand out student athlete at Washington State University in the early 90’s, Rob Tobeck went on to play 14 years in the NFL. Since retiring from the NFL, Tobeck has taken his competitive spirit to the water and now participates in fishing tournaments and derbies up and down the West Coast. In addition, he has also taken an active role in the Coastal Conservation Association and currently sits on both the state and national boards for the CCA.

Rob Endsley is a full time river guide and charter captain who operates in both Washington and Alaska and has well over 2,000 days logged on the water. Endsley is a founding member of the Wild Steelhead Coalition, a non-profit group that backs the conservation, protection and continued study of wild steelhead.

Tom Nelson is a graduate from The University of Washington’s School of Fisheries, where he was subsequently employed by the school’s Fisheries Research Institute (F.R.I.) as a Research Assistant for several Alaskan salmon research projects. Nelson has been featured in several episodes of Outdoor Channel’s “Western Sportsfishing” and serves as a Pro-Staff member for Evinrude Motors, Woolbridge Boats and Stabi-Craft Marine.

  1. Great radio program for Northwest Fisheries, conservation, and major issues concerning our NW resources. I'm also very glad that they support Coastal Conservation Association and their efforts to preserve future fisheries.
