D.O.A.’s Family Ties Is Currently Airing On Outdoor America

Vancouver, Wash. – Go behind the scenes with a group of south Texas anglers as they share stories about their outdoor lifestyle and culture while also highlighting the tools that the pros use. Outdoor America is currently airing the first season of D.O.A.’s Family Ties, presented by Laguna Madre Clothing.

Family isn’t always determined by blood. In Season One of D.O.A.’s Family Ties, their pro staff demonstrates that family can also be the people you choose.

“D.O.A.’s pro staff is more like family than anything else,” says Jamie Wilkinson, Founder of Catch All Media. “In each episode, we visit a different angler in their home waters and get a first hand look at what ‘family’ means to them.”

“We jumped at the opportunity to be a part of the D.O.A. family and showcase this great media event in South Texas,” add Wilkinson. “The D.O.A. brand and its incredible pro staff are truly a unique group of some of the most dedicated captains in the business.”
