Tradex BC


Feb 12, 2016

Make the great outdoors even greater with BC’s largest boating, fishing, hunting and sportsmen’s show. Taking place March 4-6, 2016 at Tradex in Abbotsford, the BC Boat & Sportsmen’s Show and the BC Hunting Show will welcome well over 30,000 outdoor enthusiasts from throughout the region.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the BC Boat & Sportsmen’s Show, with the BC Hunting Show in its 13th year. Together, these two long running shows will completely take over the Tradex complex with hundreds of exhibitors featuring a wide variety of fishing, boating, camping, hunting, and outdoor products and services.

“It’s an exciting year for the BC Boat & Sportsmen’s Show – celebrating a quarter of a century!” said Show Manager Les Trendall. “We’ve got hundreds of exhibitors and seminars lined up, plus some great door prizes, including a Sea-Doo Spark 900 courtesy of Greater Vancouver Powersports and BRP; a Fishing Weekend Experience from Stoney Lake Lodge and Douglas Lake Ranch; a Matrix 380 from Excalibur Crossbow and lots more!”

Visitors walking the show floor will come prepared to shop for fishing gear, boats of all sizes, camping gear, ATVs and accessories, hunting gear and equipment, camo clothing, retailers, and outfitters. Opportunities will also be available to pan for gold, catch a fish, learn to fly tie and more with the always popular seminar series offered at the show. Watch for the BC Trappers Association’s session on Skinning for Taxidermy and Fur Market, plus be sure to bring your heads, antlers and horns for scoring!

Those planning to attend the show are encouraged to avoid the line-ups and buy tickets in advance on the show website, www.BCBoatAndSportsmenShow.ca.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive.
