The 2009 Spring Fishing & Boat Show continues to strive in bringing new and innovative ideas to the table. As previously stated the show is truly dedicated to the betterment of Canadian angling and through the support of its media partners, the show is establishing unity within the industry and supporting the growth of recreational angling throughout the nation.<!–more–>
