By the time the HBO cameras rolled around during December's filming of 24/7: Flyers-Rangers Road to the Winter Classic, Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette was already used to having a camera on him during 'off-the-clock' hours.

This past summer, in his native New England summer home, Laviolette enjoyed one of his favorite hobbies – fishing.

He even brought along some cameramen and one of the most popular and well-liked personalities on an outdoor TV series to capture the moments.

On Feb. 12, Laviolette will be featured on NBC Network's program of Charlie Moore: No Offense.

Known as the "Mad Fisherman", Moore's TV Show has him take on outdoor adventures with popular figures and celebrities who share similar interests, whether that be going boxing, playing hockey, hiking and of course his first love - fishing.

"The only thing bigger than the fish I caught was Charlie's infectious personality," said Laviolette, who caught multiple fish during filming including the day's biggest - a four-pound small-mouth bass.

"For me, it was just amazing to watch him take the time to talk to all of the people around the lake, and because of his outgoing personality, he connects with everyone."

Moore has had the likes of Ray Bourque, Doug Flutie, Ray Allen, Bobby Orr, James Montgomery, John Smoltz and many other New Englanders (even Batman's Adam West and game show legend Chuck Woolery) on his program.

The day saw the two go out on Lake Waukewan in Meredith, New Hampshire to share stories, bait and have a post-fishing barbecue to cap off a great summer day.

"Charlie Moore is truly the mad fisherman. The opportunity to fish with him for a day is something that my family and I will never forget."

The scheduled air times for this episode are both prior to and following the Flyers/Red Wings game on February 12 that airs on NBC Sports Network - 6:30 p.m. & 11 p.m. ET, as well Thurs., Feb. 16 at 9 p.m.
