No matter what the weather is like outside, fishermen from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland get their fishing season started at the Greater Philadelphia Outdoor Sports Show in Oaks, Pennsylvania. For four days every February, fishermen escape the winter to stock up on fishing gear, catch seminars from fishing pros, and book trips for the coming season.
This massive show fills three exhibit halls with a huge variety of exhibitors specializing in every outdoor pursuit. Retailers will be selling everything from the latest fishing lures to authentic coonskin caps. Anglers can talk to representatives from their favorite tackle companies such as Quantum, Daiwa, Shimano, and St. Croix. State Fish and Game Representatives will also be on hand to discuss all the outdoor opportunities that exist close to home.
Don’t miss the seminars by fishing legend Hank Parker, who will be sharing his secrets for catching bass at the Hawg Trough, a 5,000-gallon fish tank full of bass. Fishermen can see how the fish react to lures and presentations, providing an invaluable education for the coming season.
Fishermen can dust off the cobwebs, and just have some fun by facing off against the fishing simulator or trying their luck at the trout pond. The show is also full of interactive exhibits for attendees of all ages, making the show an favorite outing for the whole family.
