While the only fishing anyone around the suburbs will be doing in the near future requires a hole in the ice and a hardy disposition, or at least several layers of clothing, that didn't stop many from dreaming of warm summer days on the lake while visiting the Chicagoland Fishing, Travel & Outdoor Expo on Sunday at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center.

Anglers of all ages and levels of expertise visited the convention center to get a look at the latest fishing gear and outdoor gadgets during the final day of the four-day show.
