BC Boat & Sportsmen's Show

Posted on February 27th 2014, by Master Promotions Ltd.

Abbotsford, BC – Don't miss your shot to check out BC's largest boating, fishing, hunting and sportsmen's show! The 23rd annual BC Boat & Sportsmen's Show and the 11th annual BC Hunting Show return to the TRADEX in Abbotsford, March 7th to 9th, 2014.

Together these shows represent more than 250 exhibitors and seminars offering a wide variety of fishing, boating, camping, hunting and outdoor products and services. Two great shows for one low price = UNBELIEVABLE VALUE!

For the 2014 edition, we'll be welcoming many special guests, including:

Wayne Carlton (Montrose, Colorado)

A hunting pro who pioneered the first diaphragm elk call, Wayne is a life member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the National Wild Turkey Federation and has served on the Board of Directors of both organizations. He founded the Gainesville, Florida NWTF chapter and the first Colorado state NWTF chapter, located in Montrose. He continues to share his love of the outdoors with his fellow hunters through his personal appearances.

Phil Rowley (Edmonton, Alberta)

A fishing pro who's been fly fishing for over 30 years, Phil has written for almost every major fly fishing publication in North America. He has also authored the best-selling "Fly Patterns for Stillwaters" along with two additional books, and produced four instructional DVDs. When he's not on the water, he performs at outdoor shows, conducts seminars, speaks to fly clubs and runs fly fishing schools throughout North America.

These are only two of the great speaker line-up on the Rapala Pro-Fishing Stage and the Pro-Hunting Stage! Check out our website for complete scheduling.

The BC Boat & Sportsmen's Show and BC Hunting Show will also feature:

  • Toyota's World of Fly Fishing Casting Demos
  • Fly-tying lessons courtesy of BC Fly Fishing Federation
  • Pathway to Fishing courtesy of Freshwater Fishers Society of BC
  • CORE Challenge sponsored by BC Wildlife Federation
  • Free Fly Fishing Film Tour sponsored by Sturgeon Slayers
  • Western Canada Wild Elk Calling Championships
  • Kids' fishing pond sponsored by Nicomekl Enhancement Society
  • Gun dog demos courtesy of Someday Retrievers

Additionally, the popular "Heads, Horns and Antlers" feature will return for 2014. Hunters and enthusiasts are invited to bring in their heads, horns and antlers for professional scoring. You just may have one for the books!

There is also more than $12,000 in prizes to be won, including a 2014 Sea-doo Spark, generously provided by Greater Vancouver Powersports & BRP! Plus a fishing weekend at Stoney Lake Lodge on Douglas Lake Ranch, and tons more prizes from Camping & RV in BC and Nk'Mip RV Park.
