About that Saltwater fishing expo in SOmerset
I had posted about the Fishing Expo in Somerset, remember someone said it was spam? :) Well, I did go to it and it was amazing. Holy shit! I found a new brand (to me) of Fly reel that seems to be really well made and inexpensive, for a fly reel. So soon as I get some free cash I'll order one.
It was really great, it's been a very long time since I've done any fishing and it just felt great to be around like minded people and really get to see what kind of tackle is used up here in the North East. Now I just gotta figure out how, when and where to get out
Saltwater Fishing Expo in Somerset
March 18-20th there is a Saltwater Expo at the Garden State Center. I'm going and thought I'd give you guys a heads up in case you want to go.
Go to www dot sportshows dot com to get more info, there are three more scheduled in different areas in the North East.
I went to the Flyfishing SHow there and it was amazing!
Pennsylvania gun owners
Pennsylvania gun owners threatened to boycott the state's largest hunting and fishing expo Tuesday after organizers announced that they would ban the display and sale of assault rifles at this year's show. Reed Exhibitions, a British-based company that runs the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg each February, notified vendors of the change in policy over the last several days, a company representative confirmed to The Inquirer.
The presence of so-called assault weapons and high-capacity magazines might have served as "a distraction" from other aspects of the event in the wake of the recent school shootings in Newtown, Conn
