For some, fishing and life slows down when the temperature drops and the snow hits the ground. For me, just the opposite has been happening with ice fishing, trade show season underway, and a new project that I have been working on. I haven’t been consistently updating here, but I update daily through Facebook and Twitter.
I spent last weekend at the Toronto Sportsmen’s Show in the Rapala booth and also presenting seminars at the FishTV and the Great Outdoors seminar stages. Last year was the first round for me at trade shows doing seminars, but I am becoming more and more comfortable speaking about my passion to other anglers from a stage! The power of social media is apparent to me as I met so many people at this show from Facebook, Twitter and even Instagram! I loved the opportunity to chat in person with anglers (men and women) of all ages that I have been connecting with through social media. I am so happy to have your support!

This photo is from the last day of the show when we were packing up the booth… the biggest Rapala I have seen!
There’s been a lot of buzz about some of my recent posts on Facebook
. I haven’t given away much information, just that I am working on my biggest venture yet with some of my best friends and Vantage Point Media House
! I cannot wait to share my passion for fishing on a whole new level. Don’t want to leave my blog readers out of the loop, so here are some of the photos I’ve shared… and some new ones as well!
So you’re probably wondering what this is all this about?? I promise you’ll find out soon!!
In the meantime, it’s back to another trade show for the weekend! This weekend is the Spring Fishing & Boat Show
in Toronto, Ontario. I will be doing seminars daily in ‘Paddle Lake’ and I will be at the Fogh Marine
booth all day Saturday to chat with you about Hobie kayak fishing! Hope to see you this weekend at the show!
