Al Linder headlines the Spring Fishing Show

Unable to make the trip north to Elliot Lake ice fishing derby I attended the Spring Fishing Show this weekend given the bad weather, While there I enjoyed  the numerous fishing seminars. During breaks I looked for new fishing products.

The Competitive Sport Fishing League (CFSL) had the large viewing tank set up to watch some of Canada’s top pro anglers.

 I got to interview a lot of the experts, so I know you’ll enjoy listening to the upcoming podcasts. New products like Koppers Life-Like Lures

Al Linderhad every-ones attention as he talked on how to become a better angler.
