March 10, 2017

Since the launch of our e-store and business in general in November we have been thinking about exhibiting at some kind of fishing show literally every single day. The reason behind all this desire to exhibit is simple – we have so much new stuff to show to you that it is getting hard to hold! However, let’s be consistent, so we can do a good announcement.

Introduction to #TSS17

The Toronto Sportsmen’s Show is part of the Canadian National Sportsmen’s Shows (CNSS), first took place in Toronto in 1948 under the leadership of world-famous outdoorsman, author and dedicated conservationist, Frank Kortright, who devoted his life to protecting Canada’s wilderness. Sixty seven years later, CNSS has helped protect Canada’s outdoors with grants in excess of $32 million. Community programs launched by CNSS include “Kids Fishing Day,” which allocated more than 65,000 fishing kits to kids over the ten years of the program.

Toronto Sportsmen’s Show is boasting over 350,000 square feet of exhibit space, all under one roof, it attracts over 300 exhibitors displaying a diverse range of products and services all promoting the great outdoors.  Major segments of the show include: fishing, hunting, boating, camping, travel, outdoor adventure and much more.

Fishing at TSS17

Fishing is traditionally the largest section of the show. Long story short, it is the section where all the magic and fun happens, and that is exactly where you will Fanatik Baits’ booth (#2648). You will find a lot of amazing activities and exhibitions there. We believe that pictures speak better than words, so here are couple of pics from last year:

You will find a lot of small ponds with trout, bass or any other species, and with a bit of luck you can win some amazing prizes or just have fun!

All this is just a fun part of the show, and if you are an avid angler, than you will be interested in the latest developments and advancements in fishing industry. Luckily, that is exactly where Fanatik Baits has much to offer!

Fanatik Baits at Toronto Sportsmen’s Show 2017

We have been present at this market for only about half a year but we have so much to offer and we chose Toronto Sportsmen’s Show to be a place where the world will hear first what Fanatik Baits has to offer to fishermen in North America. A lot of you already had a chance to try our baits, hooks, and jigs, and we got a lot of amazing feedback from you, so now we are ready to offer it to everybody else.

First of all, at booth #2648 Fanatik Baits will have all the baits, hooks, and jigs available for sale! You will be able to try them and make sure how great these products are. When it comes to the baits, we have two dominant soft plastic fishing baits which already conquered Europe and Russia. And, of course, we are talking about Larva and Goby:

Fanatik Baits Larva on a Demountable Jig Fanatik

Here you can see our Best Seller Larva 2.5” rigged on a Demountable Jig Fanatik together with Fanatik Offset Hook FO-3312 XL.

Fanatik Baits Goby on a Demountable Jig Fanatik

Goby proved to be amazing bait for jigging and drop shot, now it is time for you to try it on a Demountable Jig Fanatik together with our Double Hook FD-1140.

Secondly, we are bringing three models of hooks, and if you are familiar with traditional offsets and jig hooks, you will be surprised to see the sizes we are offering as well as, obviously, price (our goal is to keep fishing affordable). Micro Jig and Offset hooks will be available in the smallest sizes (size №8 and №10) for those going after crappie and perch! 

Third, we are finally bringing a completely new to the market technology – Demountable Jig Fanatik! We gave it away to try to some bloggers and anglers in Canada and USA, and feedback was amazing! It is super easy to use rig which provides THE BEST possible animation and action for the soft plastic fishing baits you are using. We will have both Tungsten and Lead Jigs to cover a need of both amateurs and professional anglers!

Last but not least, we are bringing a completely new bait which will be revealed exclusively at the show, and everybody who is willing will be able to get it the same day!  On top of that, everybody who buys something from us will get a free brochure and samples of Larva 4.5” which is going to be launched in the middle of April.
