The 31st Washington Sportsmen’s Show opens January 24th and runs through the 28th at the Washington State Fair Events Center in Puyallup. The biggest and most complete show of its kind in Washington, 2018 is shaping up to surpass previous years with exciting new features, products and personalities.
“It’s more than the largest sportsmen’s show in Washington state, it’s a celebration of fishing, hunting and outdoor recreation”, observed Bill O’Loughlin, manager of the Washington Sportsmen’s Show. “This show’s been around for decades and continues to be one of the best in the nation because of the diversity, sheer size of the event and all the major players are here — including manufacturers, retailers, guides and outfitters and hundreds of opportunities to learn and improve your fishing, hunting and outdoor skills.”
Thanks to our friends at Toyota and Western Washington Toyota Dealers, Brett Stoffel’s survival seminar is held daily at the show and has helped people overcome the odds and survive in dire conditions. Attending Brett’s seminar you’ll learn several valuable basics that can be your lifeline in a pinch if you’re lost or stuck somewhere off the beaten path.
The first-ever kokanee tank makes its debut at the Washington Sportsmen’s Show. The Bi-Mart kokanee tank presented by Mack’s Lures features dozens of catchable size kokanee salmon in a specially-built, thermostatically-controlled tank. This is the first time kokanee have ever been raised to this size in a hatchery environment and then transported for display and demonstration purposes.
Les Schwab Tires brings the Indoor River back to the Washington Sportsmen’s Show. This year’s river will be loaded with tackle-busting trophy trout and serves as the perfect setting for an impressive who’s who in northwest fishing to teach and demonstrate a variety of river and stream fishing tactics, techniques and presentations.
The Washington Sportsmen’s Show camp cooking area is always a huge hit with hours and hours of useful information shared daily by our camp cooking experts. This year’s line-up of camp cooks includes: Scott Haugen, Roger Neufeldt, Bethy Rossos, Glenn Thornton, Milt Gudgell and Steve Fleming. These are the best-of-the-best presenters in outdoor and camp cooking and food preparation.
