 SEATTLE SPORTSMEN'S SHOW FEATURES 'TOTAL OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE'
 AT SEATTLE CENTER COLISEUM
 SEATTLE, Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest fishing and hunting equipment will be joined by a new generation of outdoor recreation activities at the 1992 Seattle Sportsmen's Show at the Seattle Center Coliseum, beginning next Wednesday, Jan. 29, O'Loughlin Trade Shows said today.
 Hundreds of exhibitors, including outfitters, outdoor guides, resorts, manufacturers and retailers from the United States and Canada will be on hand for the show, blending traditional outdoor pastimes with all new exhibits in high-tech archery, mountain biking, kayaking and photography equipment. The show will also include the newest campers, tent-trailers and sportfishing boats.
 More than 100 around-the-clock free seminars will be offered in several "Adventure Theaters" on a variety of outdoor topics, including a first-ever Northwest sportsmen's show appearance by Chuck Adams, America's top bowhunter. Adams will meet with showgoers to answer their questions about this rapidly growing sport. Also featured will be Precision Shooting Equipment's "Archery Promotion Express," a colorful, high-tech archery product center.
 A pond, stocked with thousands of trout for children 12 and under, introduces young anglers to the thrill of fishing. Fishing is free with admission to the show and children can keep or release what they catch. All the gear is provided by the show.
 Seattle's Glazer's Camera Supply is staging a major photo equipment exhibit with a "photo safari" theme, including a fully equipped Jeep, duck blind and other equipment.
 Another "non-consumptive" outdoor sports display will feature mountain biking, including the new "Steelhead" model by R+E Cycles of Seattle, customized and fully rigged for an overnight fishing expedition, and an indoor mountain bike simulator.
 The rapid re-emergence of family camping will be saluted by Yeager's Sporting Goods and Marine of Bellingham, Wash., with a display of tents by Academy-Broadway, the largest tent manufacturer in the United States. The display will include "campsites" spotlighting the newest camping equipment, including cabin, dome and backpacking tents.
 In addition to hundreds of products and services, the show will feature scores of experts sharing their knowledge of casting techniques, local fishing "hot spots" and international trips. Three of the West's premier fly fishermen -- Jack Dennis, Mike Lawson and Gary LaFontaine -- will bring their expertise to the Coliseum with a series of workshops, fly-tying seminars and casting demonstrations. The acclaimed trio have worked as guides with scores of notable personalities, including Secretary of State James Baker, actors Harrison Ford, Tom Selleck, and Don Johnson, Arnold Palmer, Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney and others.
 Judy Pachner, a nationally known advocate of fishing for the disabled and a recent recipient of the prestigious "Enjoy Outdoor America Award" from the Department of Interior, will discuss her line of outdoor products designed especially for the disabled.
 Other local and national experts on hand will include Ron Boggs, the only full-time professional walleye fishing pro in the Western United States; Jim and Donna Teeny, creators of the famous "Teeny Nymph" lures; Terry Rudnick, a well-known outdoor writer and salmon fisherman; and Jake Jordan, a top guide best known for his expertise on fishing in the Florida Keys.
