Outdoor sports show aims to support fishing

January 30, 2014 by  

The 5th annual Greater Philadelphia Outdoor Sportshow is returning to Oaks for four days this February. It is presented by the American Sports Fishing Association and a portion of all proceeds will go to Keep America Fishing.

While the emphasis of the show is on angling, there will also be displays of marine electronics, boats, truck, an archery range and several seminars. Among the featured speakers will be Lou Consoli, Shaw Grigsby and Brian Immekus.

The show also features a 5,000 gallon tank which will host kayak demonstration and the American Fly Fishing School. Also planned is the Lumberjills show and live raptors. Vendors will also be on hand to sell items such as fishing accessories, wildlife art and clothing or to provide information on topics such as travel and licensing. Guests can also win a trip to a fishing lodge in Costa Rica or a daily giveaway of a pair of sunglasses. In addition, there will be a family day which will feature a scavenger hunt, a marionette show and free tackle boxes for all children attending.

Organizers of shows like this often invest in products such as banners, signs and posters advertise in the community. It is likely that fishing enthusiasts from the area, including nearby Warminster, will be interested in attending this annual event. Local printing companies are often asked to provide such products.

The Greater Philadelphia Outdoor Sportshow is taking place at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center from February 13 to 16. Tickets are $12 for adults or $3 for those aged 5 to 11. For more information call 1-603-431-4315.
