Get ready folks, the Valley Fishing & Outdoor Show is here!!
The 15th annual Valley Fishing and Outdoor Show arrives this weekend in Carp! The brainchild of my old pal Dave Arbour, this year’s show is set to run from this Friday March 27th until Sun March 29th at the Carp Fairgrounds and Arena, and will feature everything from casting ponds to archery, shooting and fishing simulators.
With more than 100 exhibitors and lots of hunting and fishing equipment this truly is the best the valley has to offer. And this year, I will there hanging out in my very own booth.
Stop by and say hi to the Outdoors Guy!
From Dave’s Site:
Located at the W. Erskine Johnston Arena 3882, Carp Rd off the 417.
The Valley Fishing & Outdoor Show – Come get your Redneck On
The Valley Fishing and Outdoors Show has gone REDNECK CRAZY.
The Carp Fairgrounds and Arena is located in the Village of Carp (3832 Carp Road) and is once again the site of this year’s event – the largest of its kind. Three buildings will be hosting the event this year, with one building dedicated just to firearms for sale or trade. The fairground offers lots of free parking.
This year has it all – with boats, to get you on the water, outfitters to help you plan your next great adventure getaway, and tackle shops and hunting gear to help outfit you for your season. This year’s show is full of great prizes thanks to our many sponsors. You could win a pair of Monster Spectacular tickets for May 30th at the CTC Centre, fishing rods at the casting pond, a Muskie charter from Muskie Canada or a cookbook from Jeff Morrison “The Outdoors Guy”. This year’s event is truly interactive and a family oriented event with games for the kids and young at heart to test your skills in shooting, archery, casting and fishing, soap carving, fly tying and more.
New this year is Fish Cleaning demonstrations by Jeff McNaughton from MNRF and “Ask the Butcher” with Steve Moss from Mossy’s Smoke Shop. Their demonstrations and tips of the trade will help you turn that trophy catch into a tasty treat. Also new this year will be live entertainment from the Felhaver Band on Sunday to help you kick off the winter blues and put a “jig” in your step as you get ready for spring and the new fishing & hunting season. Amanda Kingsland from Y101 will be on hand Saturday on the main stage to host “The Redneck Runway”, a fashion show of all the new and latest clothing to help keep you warm, dry and looking your best.
Seminars: We are pleased to be offering an outstanding line-up of presenters on the main stage this year. John Anderson one of the world’s foremost renound Muskie speakers and television guest and tournament pro will be on the main stage Friday and Saturday. Canadian Hall of Fame inductee Big Jim McLaughlin will take the stage Sunday. Big Jim has been an integral part of Canadian sport fishing for 30 years and is always a hit at the Show. The Ottawa Fly Fishing Society will also be taking the main stage on Friday evening. They will also be giving demonstrations and lessons on tying flies throughout the weekend. Saturday Len Dickinson will present on “the travelling hunter”. Len is an avid globe–trotting hunter who will be sure to pass on his tips to make sure your next hunting trip is a memorable one.
The third building at the show will house the Gun Show. Admission to the Fishing & Outdoor Show also gets you into this venue. A Show within a Show! There will be 50 tables of firearms for sale and trade. These vendors will help you find the perfect firearm for your upcoming hunting season.
So come on out and get your REDNECK on. Free parking and reasonable admission rates, makes this an affordable outing for the whole family.
