The Greater Niagara Fishing & Outdoor Expo, being held inside The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls Jan. 24 through 26, includes more than 100 outdoor vendors and features The Bass University’s premier educational programming and presentations by Mike Iaconelli among others. Also featured are expert archer, Frank “The Aspirin Buster” Addington, Jr., as well as other unique highlights throughout the weekend.

“This brand new Expo is planned as one of four outdoor expos produced by Global Spectrum, the company that manages The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls (CCNF), throughout the country,” said Ryan Coate, CCNF general manager. “We are working with local, regional and national sportsmen from both sides of the border to present this Expo for our entire Niagara region, one of the most diverse freshwater fisheries and natural wildlife habitats in the world.”

Bass University classes are in addition to the Expo ticket price and make the perfect holiday gift for any fisherman.

The above-mentioned speakers will also be on hand throughout the weekend to make presentations to the general audience. Schedule to be announced.

Another featured presenter is Frank “The Aspirin Buster” Addington, Jr., an instinctive archer that has been shooting a bow and arrow since the age of four and on stage since he was 18 performing what some in the media have dubbed "an amazing array of bow and arrow razzle dazzle.”

The Expo is also partnering with the Lake Ontario Trout & Salmon Association (LOTSA) to present the free “Learn to Fish Lake Ontario” and “Kids Learn to Fish” classes; “Salmon School” will be held on Saturday, with instructors Dan Keating, a 30-year charter captain, tournament angler and author; as well as Dave Mull, award-winning journalist, photographer and contributor to Great Lakes Angler Magazine. Another highlight, the ever popular LOTSA Marketplace, with more than 50 vendors, will be featured on Sunday. Admission to the LOTSA Marketplace is free to anyone attending the Greater Niagara Fishing & Outdoor Expo. For more information, visit www.LOTSA.org.
