Since it started in 2011, Uncut Angling has grown from a pair of friends filming fishing for fun to a full-time venture for Aaron Wiebe.

The humorous and informative fishing show can be found on youtube and now has over 100,000 subscribers.

The show originally started after two friends from Altona, Jay Siemens and Wiebe, were wrapping up a fishing trip. Wiebe proposed the idea to Siemens and it grew from there.

''I decided to take the plunge and join Aaron on what turned out to be something bigger than we both expected," says Siemens.

Siemens says the show originally started on youtube, then they were able to connect with a television network, after which they went back to youtube because they felt it was more their style.

Since its first video on September 7th, 2011 the channel has grown to 116,640 subscribers, which earned the group the 'Youtube Play Button' acknowledging the milestone.

"I can't say we ever expected that. It's pretty wild. Now we put up a video and it'll have around 30,000 views in the first day," Siemens says, who remembers there only being around 500 views on their first video.

"I think it's Aaron's (Wiebe) personality, he's just so off the wall and is so captivating," says Siemens. "He is the mixture of teaching, we always try to have something educational. The humor, we've done a bunch of goofy videos and then big fish. At the end of the day if we didn't get a big fish we didn't put the video online."

Siemens notes whether it be catching monster pike with the Youtube Play Button or even catching Bluegills with a drone, Wiebe always has something to keep viewers intrigued.
