Running from March 17–20, the Sportsmen's Exposition brings all the trappings of the sportsman's life under one giant convention-center roof. Experts in a myriad of outdoor sports, such as fishing and big-game hunting, provide tips for upcoming trips into the wild, and interactive exhibits allow expo-goers to test fly rods, climb a rock wall, and pit arrow-launching skills against fellow bowmen with a 3-D pop-up archery contest. A fully stocked indoor fish pond, meanwhile, lets kids master catch-and-release skills to test out on older siblings when they get home. The event has hundreds of exhibitors selling top-of-the-line outdoor gear and touting sporting destinations from around the globe. The convention center has ample parking and is easily accessible by TRAX. Children age 15 and under are admitted free with a paying adult, and active military members are admitted free with military ID.
Zach Emig and David Cooper have fished for more than 20 years, oftentimes 200 times a year and all over the country. They draw upon knowledge accumulated during these endeavors while presiding over equipment and guests at Simply Fishing. When they founded the business, Zach and David also realized that they didn’t just want to furnish anglers with rods, custom flies tied by a resident fly winder, and signed headshots of Poseidon to lure in local marine life; they wanted to share their acute knowledge of local fishing hot spots. Thus, they lead half- and full-day excursions on six lakes and rivers, including Provo River. They are excited to teach their techniques and “committed to helping you not have to lie” about catching 300-pound catfish made of diamonds.
