The Fraser Valley Boat & Sportsmen's Show will take place on March 2nd to 4th at Tradex in Abbotsford. This show is Western Canada's biggest in the industry, hosted with the annual Hunting Show and the Country Living Show, all under one roof!

This is your chance to come out and talk to manufacturers, try out their products and purchase from various retail outlets. There will also be ongoing fishing seminars during the show. Some of the popular seminar presenters are back, including Vic Carrao of STS Guiding Service and Brian Chan of the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC.

Some of FWR's advertisers and sponsors will also be there this year, including Islander Precision Reels, Stryker Rods, STS Guiding Service, Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC, TNT Marine and BC Outdoors Sport Fishing Magazine. The Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Coalition will also have a booth, where kids flytying workshops will be available throughout the show. Steelhead King, Chrome Mykiss, Itosh, Newsman, DanTfisherman, Floon will be a few of the flytying instructors at the workshop. Please come by and visit!

I'm pretty sure the kids and I will be going.. have yet to miss a fishing event.  ;)  plus all 4 of them like collecting all the pamphlets and practicing their fly tying. ( even though they still have the last 3 years worth of "handouts".. :-\ ) we could probably host our own "fishing" show with all the stuff we have!  :D

hope to see you all there,
Cathy

ps Rod: you might want to update the info on the top of the page in regards to the show... still shows the dates from 2006.  ;)

Sounds very good Nicole. Steelhead King, Deb and Floon will be doing the tyings on Friday. Saturday, newsman, DanT'fisherman will be in charge, so they can always use a hand or two. ;) Sunday, Chrome Mykiss, Itosh and Fishersak will be babysitting the kids at the booth. :)

Another expected feature is STS Guiding Service's new custom built Hells Canyon Marine Jet Boat.
