T.J.Schwanky

T.J. Schwanky and Vanessa Harrop are Co-hosts of Outdoor Quest TV that airs in Canada on Wild TV and worldwide at www.myoutdoortv.com. Outdoor Quest TV is Canada’s longest-running hunting/fishing series and is now in its tenth season of broadcast.

ReelBait has been a sponsor of the series since day one and both TJ and Vanessa feel the Walleye Flasher is the only jig that an angler really needs in their tackle box. From perch and trout to pike, walleye and lake trout, the Walleye Flasher is deadly on them all. Whether fished vertically, cast, trolled dragged or suspended beneath a slip bobber, the Walleye Flasher has it covered.

TJ is a well known outdoor writer with credits in virtually all Canadian publicans. He writes regular columns for Alberta Outdoorsmen and The Outdoor Edge and is a field editor for Outdoor Canada. As a long-time tournament angler, walleye are one of his favorite topics to write about. Together with partner Rich Mellon, TJ gives dozens of seminars at sportsmen shows and retailers across Canada.
