Look for TBF at the 54th edition of The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show(FLIBS) running from Thursday, October 31st – Monday November, 4th. FLIBS promoters forecast this year’s event to be one of the best ever, with new attractions including Seafair, which features upscale food, drinks and shopping, and the Sailfish Pavilion located at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center. Be sure and visit The Billfish Foundation’s display at the Bahia Mar location near the front of the entrance tent.

Steve Goione, TBF’s 2013 artist will be a guest at our booth on the first two days of the boat show. Steve celebrated his home state of North Carolina and its iconic boat-builders when he created “A Rigger Full” for the TBF 2013 Print of the Year. The centerpiece of the print features a sleek sportfishing boat aptly name Release Me, with masts loaded with TBF tag flags. Two beautiful blue marlin complete this beautiful work of art. Steve will be at the TBF display on Thursday and Friday, illustrating an original pen and ink remarque on the print during show hours to increase its value and exclusivity even more! Those who join or renew their TBF membership at the boat show will be entered into a drawing for this one of a kind work of art!

TBF will also be debuting some brand new apparel from our conservation partner, Pelagic. You will definitely want to check out this great looking gear either for yourself, or be ahead of the game and start your holiday shopping for your favorite anglers!
