Biography

“Hook the Future” revolves around fishing – but it’s about a lot more than landing lunkers. It’s also about empowering your children. The show is hosted by Don Dingman, an expert angler who lost his 22-year old son, Brian, in 2004. This inspired Don to produce this program to show other parents how important it is to spend quality time with their own kids.

Going out fishing 3 times a month with his own dad, Don learned how precious that parent/child connection is, and how the best way to teach a kid to do something, is to simply let him do it. Don says, “When you take kids fishing let them drive the boat, let ’em fight the fish… that’s how they learn when you teach ’em basketball or football you don’t watch TV all day you let them get in there and play.” Of course, it doesn’t hurt that “Captain Don” has a great sense of humor and that kids instantly love him.
