These pages summarize my unfortunate experience with Al Sebastian and his Canadian Classic/Country FishFry business.

Canadian Country Fishfry is a recent name for canadian classic fishfry. Al would probably like to be known as the fisherman's friend or fish whisperer.

Who would have thought I'd still be chasing this asshole in 2018?

I thought he would either have: a) come to senses and paid off his dept like he said he would when he was in court (about the same odds as a snowball in hell), or b) borrowed money from someone more determined than I am and might be missing a few fingers by now.
I heard from a company out west that had been buying Al's fish batter product line by the pallet load until recently. It's too bad they didn't stumble upon this blog while they were still dealing with Al. I don't remember why they said they quit dealing with him, but it's probably easy to guess based on his past practices.

Spring/Summer 2018   (Updated: Jul 1/18)

Apr 8/18: Hopefully Al will continue with his current employer for a while. Payments have been arriving regularly from the Credit Bureau and he's now paid off about 1/3 of his debt.

I came across an old Project Funding request that Al had submitted back in Jan 2013. At that time he was looking for a single investor to contribute a minimum of $185,000. It's probably safe to assume that no one was dumb enough to get involved with this project.



Fall/Winter 2018   (Updated: Oct 1/18)

Oct 1/18: I wonder what was going on in Alberta last month? There was a lot of interest in this site from the Hylo, Lac La Biche and Slave Lake areas.

Google alerts is a very handy service. It looks like Wally's Bait and Tackle in Windsor (Ontario) are carrying Canadian Classic Fishfry. The product photo on Wally's website looks very familiar, oh yeah it's the photo I took back in the "good old days".
Wally's is stocking canadian classic fishfry.
Here's a screenshot of Wally's Fishfry page in case the link quits working.
