I did a good job and did not spend too much today. Purchases were limited to a new 7' Stick it pin, some new plastic swimbaits and rod holders. I will post product reviews on all of these products when I get back on the watter in the spring. I also spent quite a bit of time talking to the folks at Release Reels. They are working on some exciting updates for there reels and I look forward to fishing one once those are completed. If your looking for a lever drag reel check them out.
I would much rather be on the water, but this is the next best thing. The show ends on the 23rd, but they will be in Greensboro, NC in February. One great thing is, if you support all of these companies, you are supporting the local economy and for the most part buying American made products. I am fortunate to know most of these people and their companies fairly well, but they all are genuine people. If your thinking about purchasing a new Kayak, want to know more about kayaking in the Chesapeake, or book a trip,. check out these folks first. The best part about the show was visiting with friends and fellow fishermen, exchanging fish stories and meeting their families. Sometimes, when you are deeply involved with something, you forget about the human element. Today helped me remember why I love this sport of ours. I look forward to my next report, as it should be from the water.
Live the Dream!
