WOAH…. What an event the 2011 Toronto Sportsmens Show turned out to be! The Fishing Hall was chock full of the best in fishing electronics and related accessories from Lowrance, Humminbird, Garmin, Icom, Standard Horizon, Vexilar, FishHawk, Navionics, Marcum and more! MinnKota Trolling Motors and the new MinnKota Talon was another big hit and the prices at the Radioworld booth were something that was not to be missed!
The rest of the Fishing Hall was filled with the widest selection of fishing rods, lures, line, boats, motors, downriggers and all good things fishing, plus a huge selection of ATV’s and those world famous Triton Trailers (they are the best for sure).
The Great Outdoors Seminar Stage was a HUGE HIT and featured the best in the industry talking to folks about fishing.
Bob Izumi was a big hit as always and shared some great stories with everyone. Bob was joined by friends Big Jim McLaughlin, Rocky Crawford and Radioworld ProStaffer Grant McAllister, all passing along fishing tips and techniquies to young and old all weekend long!
The Hunting Hall was also a big hit featuring some of the best Northern Wildlife exhibits I have ever seen. Radioworld had a busy booth there as well, selling Game Cameras, Walkers Game Ear, Garmin GPS’s, Topo Software, Bushnell Binoculars, Spotting Scopes and Range Finders, SPOT Satellite Messengers, Swiss Army and Gerber knives and tools and some of the coolest solar power battery charging systems ever seen!
I have to thank the folks at Lowrance and Humminbird for assisting with an awesome ProStaff Team (Gerry Heels, Rick Weatherill – Lowrance)(Pete Bartonek – Humminbird) and my hats off to Team Humminbird and Team Garmin for a great showcase of products and ProStaffers at their corporate booths.
I also wanted to say thanks to a great show team. Bruce and Adam in the Hunting Hall, Lawren, Paul, Leo and Grant in the Fishing Hall…. You guys rock!
And to all my customers and friends… Thanks for making my weekend so enjoyable. I love my job…I love seeing all you people, laughing, telling stories and sharing lunches!
