Brisbane’s anglers are set to be caught hook, line and sinker at this year’s Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show, say the organisers, with a record number of exhibitors already confirmed.

The event will again run at the RNA Showgrounds, from March, 19 – 21, 2010, and the organisers have promised that this year’s show will be even bigger and better than last year’s, which was attended by more than 30,000 people.

Jason Plant from event organisers Marine Queensland said that there would be greater emphasis on education, with a host of speakers and presentations confirmed for the Club Marine Fishing Stage.

"The program for this year’s Club Marine Fishing Stage will include presentations from professional fishermen Dave Downie and Kaj "Bushy" Bush, who will be sharing their expert advice to anglers of all levels," Plant said.

"We have also confirmed cooking demonstrations with Jason Andrews and Rodo Quinton, who have 40 years of experience between them, along with the Berkley Kids Fishing Show which will include plenty of fun, games and giveaways.

"The Club Marine Fishing Stage will also be the weigh-in location for the 2010 Humminbird Queensland Open, which will see the 20 teams competing in the competition attending the Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show daily, to weigh-in the best five bream caught each day from Moreton Bay. The competition is one of the best in Australia and attracts some of the nation’s leading anglers who do battle for the major prize of $10,000.00"

Other attractions include the Sports Fishin’ Simulator that tests angler’s skills catching different fish in various environments, and the return of the 4BC Kids Clinic that tests younger anglers on how to cast a rod and net, catch a yabbie, and how to preserve the waterways.

For the sixth year now the Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show will also be held alongside the National 4x4 and Outdoors Expo.

"There is no doubt that fishing and boating go hand-in-hand with four wheel driving and camping," said Mark Petersen from the National 4x4 and Outdoors Expo.

"This year’s event will feature a number of exhibitors who will have everything from tents to campervans, along with the latest four wheel drive models and accessories to get away from the city," he said.

Tickets for the Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show cost $12 while children under 15 may attend for free. Entry includes admission to both shows.
