The Tinley show is Feb. 10th and 11th. The address is 6111 W. 175th, Tinley Park. Its a great show good venders, siminars ,food pretty good size. If I were to rate it it by far beats Arlington and Rosemont because there is no one selling shoes knives,mortagages,etc. Its all pretty much people that fish the same waters we do so its pretty much a local show its worth the ride.
They fill the gym,auditorium,and hallways it really is a good show. I think if I was going to hit any show in our area this would be the one. Don and Rich for illinois outdoors do a great job with this show Quality vendors and and just all around good people there to talk fish with.
Yes for the most part but there are some wisc. mich. and surronding state reps there pretty much what you see in midwest outdoors. There are quite a few local guides there and alot of tackle vendors. Its priced pretty reasonable too $4.00 entry and all the money goes to the school which is pretty cool.
The booth I will be in is JD Spinners and TJP (Mr. Musky) is in the same booth so come on out and meet if you dont already know to great Fox Chain Fishermen they can really open your eyes to what a great fishery we have in our own back yard. Hope to see and meet everyone at the show.
