Victoria Boat and Fishing show sails in to Pearkes

Weekend event features entertainment, seminars and dozens of exhibitors from the boating and finishing industries

Pearkes Recreation Centre will be a little fishy this weekend as the Saanich arena plays host to the 2014 Victoria Boat and Fishing Show.

The three-day event (Feb. 21-23) will feature entertainment, seminars and more than two dozen exhibitors from the boating and fishing industries.

Among the seminars offered are: learning how to fish from a kayak, trolling for salmon, and the future of sport fishing on Vancouver Island.

Tickets are $9 for men, $7 for seniors. Women and kids under 18 are free. Get $2 off your ticket price by bringing in a non-perishable food donation for the Mustard Seed Food Bank.

The Victoria Boat and Fishing Show runs 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday at 3100 Tillicum Rd.
