For anglers who enjoy either the open waters off the coast or prefer our inland waterways, the Sydney International Boat Show promises new vessels, the latest rods, tackle, accessories and loads of technology designed to make your day on the water even more enjoyable.

Being the Southern Hemisphere's biggest boat show, open from the 2nd to the 6th of August at the ICC Sydney and Cockle Bay Darling Harbour, the Sydney International Boat Show is the place to choose and buy your rod and reel combo, as well as fish finders, hard and soft lures, bait buckets, landing nets or even your next boat to go with all your new gear.

Learn how to fish like never before at the show's fishing masterclasses, included with the cost of entry. A massive 63% of people visiting the show express an interest in fishing. The fishing clinics reflect that interest, with presentations ranging from inland waterway fishing to the more adventurous offshore competitions, presenting videos, photos and stories to match.

You don't need to travel too far to land the big ones, as game fishing multi-world-record holder Tim Simpson leads this year's fishing master classes, giving tremendous tips on how to catch marlin locally off Sydney, with your trailerboat.

Steve 'Starlo' Starling returns to talk about setting-up your boat perfectly for your style of fishing. What makes the ideal boating rig for your preferred style of fishing? Choosing the optimum layout, configuration and accessories will not only enhance your success, but also maximise your enjoyment of the sport. Turn those sorry sagas of "the one that got away" into tales of victory with Steve's invaluable advice.

Also on stage, Justin Duggan covers sport angling on Sydney Harbour and other estuaries. As a former Zookeeper and Wildlife photographer, Justin found his passion for fishing and wildlife blended perfectly into the vast waterways and National Parks that wind through Sydney.

Greg Reid presents the best way to land big flathead. He has been fishing Jervis Bay and St Georges Basin for over twenty years and knows the area like the back of his hand.

Paul Burt tells on stage of his sneaky techniques for landing reef fish, and shares his famous recipe for preparing tuna 'poke', a real taste sensation.

Jo Starling gives her insights on introducing kids to fishing the proper way, as getting the kids to pick up a rod instead of a smartphone can be a challenge, but the rewards are worth fighting for. Fishing is one of the greatest gifts you can share. Come and discuss tactics for success with Jo, and let the kids join in on some fun fishing games and quizzes.

Additionally, YouTube sensation Rhys Creed shares his secrets on catching the huge but sometimes elusive Murray cod. Rhys has built an incredible following amongst the internet generation, based around his online videos and engaging style, demonstrating his skill and love of fishing.

The Supertank also returns where Cookie and Brett present live fish chasing a variety of lures right in front of your eyes. Learn about the best gear and techniques, while witnessing how well they work.

Alan Blake, President of the Boating Industry Association Ltd staging the event, said fishing represents the great Australian pastime of enjoying the outdoors with friends and family. "The Sydney International Boat Show brings together the leading dealers and manufacturers from across Australia and beyond, ready to showcase the latest in fishing, boating and marine technology," he said. "This is the show where all your questions about spending more time on the water and catching bigger and better fish can be answered."

The Department of Primary Industries can also be found at the Boating Safety Zone presented by Transport for New South Wales, the Show's Partner in Safety. At this zone, you can learn about the regulations governing fishing across NSW, and the ways you can assist in keeping our waterways safe and sustainable.

Tickets and up to date details regarding the show are available at www.sydneyboatshow.com.au.
