THE Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show has confirmed that Club Marine has signed on as its presenting partner for the sixth consecutive year.

To be held at Brisbane's RNA Showgrounds from April 4-6, the 2014 Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show will again be staged alongside the National 4x4 & Outdoors Show, making it Australia's biggest outdoors expo.

"Every year, tens of thousands of people flock to the Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show and part of its success can be contributed to our supporting partners, specifically Club Marine," event manager Kiri Ngarotata said.

"A wide range of exhibitors are confirmed for this year's show, ensuring that there will be something for everyone, with all boating and fishing needs considered (and) with thousands of products available to inspire and purchase."

Club Marine's newest gourmet cookbook, Club Marine Gourmet Delights, featuring recipes from resident chef Bart Beek, will be available to purchase for $10, with Beek conducting hourly cooking demonstrations of some of the magazine's recipes.

Club Marine will also continue to show its support for the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard, with Club Marine Assist life rings available for a gold-coin donation.

The event will have all entertainment bases covered, with a host of special guests and activities to occupy the whole family.

The Waeco Outback Stage, presented by 4WD Touring Australia, will host a series of family friendly informative talks by the ultimate Australian wildlife warriors, Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin, as well as Chris "Brolga" Barns, aka Kangaroo Dundee.

Another special guest, the host of TV's iFish program Paul Worsteling, is guaranteed to be a hit with anglers of all ages as he takes to the Fishing Expo Stage with regular talks and workshops.

The Kids Marine Zone will teach youngsters the basics of fishing, including knot tying, rod casting and bait netting.

At the three saltwater tanks, kids will learn how to identify different types of sea creatures, including estuary fish, as well as seeing dangerous marine life up close such as sting rays, sharks and bluebottles (subject to availability).

Children will also be able to use their new-found skills to catch freshwater yabbies, with all participants receiving prizes and a sample bag.

The event is set to be the ultimate off-road, touring, towing, fishing and boating exhibition.

More than 20,000 square metres will be dedicated to everything outdoor related, with more than 200 exhibitors showing off their latest wares, with hundreds of thousands of products on display and masses of show specials.

Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for seniors, with children under 15 free.

A two-day adult pass is also available for $25.
