Brought to you by the folks at the Canadian Outdoor Sport Shows.
A show that was spawned back in 1992 and sold in 2006 that changed and gave the show new meaning to its new beginning as the unprecedented Spring Fishing & Boat Show. It continues to better itself and within 7 years has introduced the Angler Hall of Fame and continues to thrive year after year with new innovative ideas, supporting non profit groups and preserving the future of the resource and the sport each year because if its fishing related then we’ve got it.
If this is the year that you have been waiting for to buy that new boat than be sure you come down to this year’s show where manufacturers and marinas will showcase dozens, and we mean dozens of dozens, of brands, literally representing hundreds of models. Whether it an accessory, a motor, a boat or a whole package, we are sure you find it at this year’s Spring Fishing & Boat show. From kayaks to canoes and from aluminum to fibreglass it will be there, and with plenty of time until opening day.
With factory representatives and nationally recognized fishing pros on hand, new products can be properly demonstrated as these avid anglers will be more than eager to show you all the latest and greatest gear for the new year.
Make your dream adventures come true, book a trip with one of our many outfitters from across the country, with access to thousands of lakes, each one species specific promising to make your next fishing trip an adventure of a life time.
Where else can you find hundreds of exhibitors displaying endless products devoted to fishing, camping, hunting and the great outdoors, under just one roof and with free parking within the GTA.
As the show has become a Family Day weekend tradition, it is our goal to educate and offer all kinds of activities for the whole family like a free trout pond, the Ontario Bass Federation Casting Kids, a rock climbing wall and tons of great information and activities to get your family out of doors this summer!
Take in free seminars by some of North America’s best-known anglers like Jim Saric a highly respected muskie hunter that will present exciting and informative seminars on how to catch these illusive fresh water giants. If you are prepared to listen then this is the place to be for our fish tales are everything but that. In fact with anglers like Bob Izumi, Italo Labignan, James Lindner, Dave Mercer, Ted Takasaki, JP DeRose, Outdoor Canada’s Gord Pyzer, our very own Big Jim McLaughlin of Just Fishing Newspaper and dozens of CSFL Pro Panels answer the toughest questions hosted by Danny Dun, Dan Risorto and Mike Brown. Now if that doesn’t hit the spot, let our kayak and canoe specialist Ashley Rae teach you how to get into those back bays where boats can’t go and where the big fish live. Have we hooked you yet? Well maybe it’s all about the tranquility of the sport, the peace and quiet that will allow us to set the hook. The Isaac Walton Fly Fishing Club is back to teach you the art of fly fishing in our casting pond and help tie your very own flies.
After taking this all in, we believe we can complete a successful day of fishing reel easy by visiting with Paul Powis who will show you how to clean and store your catch with ease and very little mess. And to take it one step further, if we’re going to teach you how to catch and clean them, it only be appropriate to show you how to cook them. Just in case you have forgotten how good fish can taste, let Chef Beny remind you with an in-house shore lunch and great cooking tips.
Have you ever wondered what some of those of fishing lures you inherited are really worth? Well why not bring some of that old tackle down with you for an expert appraisal? You never know, you could be sitting on a reel fortune.
Be sure to stop in and talk to the boys from Advanced Taxidermy and witness for yourself replicated art of the outdoors.
Come on down to the International Centre at 6900 Airport Road in Mississauga and find out what all the fuss is about. We are sure you will love the show – for reel, and a whole lot more.
