Getting attacked by an 8-foot alligator probably isn't a good career move unless you're Jeff Quattrocchi. "I kind of look at myself as the Evel Knievel of alligator handling, " he explains with a smile. Quattrocchi, who's better known as "The Swampmaster", is a professional alligator handler. Jeff Quattrocchi of Orlando finds that the 7-ft. alligator may not see eye-to-eye as Quattrocchi demonstrates his skill at alligator handling, one of the features at this year's show. The alligators in his show are purchased from alligator farms while they're still quite ferocious. After 2 weeks, the gator is placed in a pond with numerous other gators which have retired from the show. Part of the feature is educational as Jeff points out many facts about alligators.

American Fly Fishing School

The experts from the American Fly Fishing School will have a casting pool right on the show floor offering continuous fly casting instruction. Also, they’ll have a learning center staffed by expert fly tyers and fly anglers. This is your opportunity to learn the quiet sport of fly fishing.
