This is the 42ND Annual Fishing Show and is the biggest consumer fishing show in the entire United States. The show will cover over 200,000 square feet of space.

The show‘s main theme is emphasizing fishing tackle, fishing boats and all facets of fishing will be covered.


Seminars: There will be numerous fishing clinics held each day plus a special “How to” session on Saturday and Sunday for children at 2 PM. All classes are being taught by fishing experts.

There will be numerous displays of rods, reels, line and bait plus completely equipped fishing boats.


I am not a fisherman but sometimes I think I wish I would have learned how to fish as going fishing looks like a great way to relax and forget about all the details of business. This has to be a go to event for all the fishermen who live in the Katy or surrounding areas to attend. If you attend enjoy yourself and send me message telling me your favorite part of the show.

Hi Bob... well, I guess if you're into fish and fishing this would be a great show. I don't eat fish and I don't get on boats as I get seasick. So for me this would be a show I'd pass on.

I hit many of the shows in my state every year.   Better than going to the mall

We have friends who fish.  Neither one of us are interested, and I used to like going with my father, he did the fishing and we enjoyed being together.  A

I love flyfishing. I'm pretty good at it, too. Although I will tell you, that the best part of fishing is just being outside around water and often in a wooded least around here. So it's a great hobby to take up to relax.

A fishing show? That sounds like something my husband would love to go to, especially in Texas where they say everything is bigger!

Bob- I love to fish, so were Larry and I back in Houston, we would definitely attend this.

I have several family members that show would be a hit with.  I don't fish because I don't like live bait, taking them off the hook or cleaning them.  But, I'll cook all of them that you want!

This is very good information to share with area residents and visitors.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) about 2 years ago

Good morning Bob.  I'm sure that fishermen will be flocking to this show for the latest and greatest in the industry.

Bob, this event sounds like fun, and used to fish prior to getting into real estate.
