I will be along there at some point since it's local for me.

Anyone else planning on being there?

Thanks for the alert about the Marlboro show. I'll have to add it to my calendar!

Noticed that Sage is not going to be at Marlboro. Also, did not see Temple Fork. Looks like some of the vendors are cutting back . Interesting. FishHawk

I have confirmed with TFO that they will be at the show with a booth. I am wondering if the vendor list is up to date and complete.

The Marlborough show is on the skids. The thing is all about making a buck. Huge charge for a booth and huge admissions, then he trots out the same list of seminars year after year. This is at least the fourth year in a row with the same speakers doing the same programs. Unless I`m really depressed I can`t see $14 a ticket to see 27 Salmon fly artisans tie display pieces and watch Sedotti do another Syonara Sling and then go sleep thru a seminar.

Adrian, is Danbury differant? Wouldn`t mind the drive as long as it was differant.

Danbury is smaller of course, but very personable and nicely done. There are a fair number of exhibitors and it's comfortably attended so you see a lot of friends and personalities but you also have enough time to chat.

Marlboro is very commercial, which has it's ups and downs. Depends on what you're after. Somerset is the mother of all shows this side of the Mississipi.

My favorite in this region is the March show at the Shriners.

I hope to make the drive, I'll be out casting in the parking lot most likely

Agreed, Danbury is a bit more user friendly than Marlborough madness.

There are some similar faces but also some local folks like Geoff Northrop covering the Norwalk Islands and LI Sound.

This year I will have a pass for Saturday evening libations if folks are staying local.

Well, it looks like I might not make Danbury after all. My mother-in-law will most likely be in the hospital on Christmas itself, so we may be traveling back up to visit the in-laws at home for a second Christmas on the weekend of the show.

If not Danbury, then I'll make Marlborough or Somerset.

I wanted to do the Providence show last year but something came up. I'll definitely try to get there this year!

JF -

What percentage of that show is FF and what is general fishing? I will probably attend either way just curious what to expect. Lots of common stuff to ogle, boats, waders, etc. even beyond the FF booths.
