New Outdoor Show coming to Chicago

There’s a new outdoor show coming to Chicago, the Chicagoland Fishing, Travel and Outdoor Expo.  It will be held at the Schaumburg Convention Center.

What many people will like is that this show will be the closest thing to the old outdoor shows of the 80’s when a visitor can see all the new gear at the manufacturers booths then get them at the retailers at the show.   Many big name speakers will be there like Kevin VanDam and Mike Iaconelli and more.

Best way to learn about the show is visit their site at

On Thursday, January 24 which is the show’s opening night, Jim DaRosa and I will be doing a remote broadcast of the Fishing and Outdoor Radio Show for the now known as “Schaumburg Show”.    We’ll be on the showroom floor just inside the entrance at booth 10.  Show will be from 6:30 to 7:30 PM.  Stop by and say hello.

On Sunday, January 27 at 12:30, Jim and I will be doing a seminar on high school fishing titled Plano/Frabill’s Illinois High Schools Fish Here.   For Sunday Only, show staff is allowing $3 admission for high school students with a school ID.   We encourage not only high school students to attend but also adults who may be interested in working with high school fishing teams.

Another good reason to attend the seminar as we’ll be giving away a few Fishing and Outdoor Radio Show T-Shirts plus we have some baseball hats autographed by prose like KVD, Ike, Chris Lane and more.  Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to get one.

See you at the show!
