Continuum Productions, the new managers of the London Boat Fishing and Outdoor Show, have big plans for the show this month. The event, which runs from February 21 to 23, returns to the Western Fair District in London, Ontario, but moves to the Agriplex building.
The event is scheduled to feature a full lineup of attractions designed to draw visitors.
New for this year's show is Canada's Power and Outdoor Zone. Show visitors interested in a new vehicle, toy or place to lodge this summer, will find specials in this area. One attendee will win a Honda TRX 420FM ATV courtesy of the show.
Anglers have the opportunity to learn from Leo Stakos and Ron James stars from the FISH TV series, are scheduled to share their insight and expertise at the show. The FISH TV Family Zone will provide families the opportunity to try their hand at fishing for free in the show's indoor pond.
For seasoned anglers, FISH TV has provided fishing simulators to test their skills with interactive games. Attendees can take a stroll through The Great Canadian Fishing Store to purchase new fishing tackle and accessories or to learn more about the outdoors through such associations as OFAH, the Ontario Federation of Angler and Hunters.
Members of the RCMP will be present to explain the new joint initiative with US law enforcement. The Canada-US Shiprider program was launched in June 2013, allowing vessels jointly crewed by specially trained and designated Canadian and US law enforcement officers to transit together across the border. The goal of the program is to help secure the waters from issues of national security and prevent cross-border smuggling and trafficking.
The Confederation Marine Modellers will display model replicas boats, both historical and current. Attendees can learn firsthand how these model replicas are hand crafted. While they're at it, they can try their hand at driving the pint-sized remote controlled replicas of some of the very same boats on the show room floor.
