Denis Isbister was born on July 2, 1976 in Fallon Nevada . At a young age he was introduced to the outdoors by his grandfather. Every summer they would travel throughout the high desert of Northern Nevada , Oregon , and Washington in search of big fish. Who would have known these leisurely summer fishing trips would become the foundation of the adventure fishing to come. Wild Fish Wild Places was started in 2010 with the idea that the fishing world needed more out of fishing programs. We dedicated time and effort into finding some of the most interesting places, stories and monster fish to highlight in our shows. Wild Fish Wild Places was nominated for "Best Fishing Show" its second year and has been growing our presence throughout the world ever since.
