We're invited to the MSBA show

At the Marlboro show I had the pleasure to meet and chat with the MSBA President Patrick Paquette. After watching us in action and learning a little bit about who we are he invited us to accept a booth at the Mass. Striped Bass Association Annual Sportfishing Expo.

Below are the details and I'm asking if there is interest out there to make a quality go of it.

Where: Plymouth, Cordage Park
When: March 23rd and 24th, 9:30 - 6 and 9 - 5 respectively
Cost: The booth is free for organizations like ours. It will be 8X10 and if our booth doesn't fit they will make accomodations. Complimentary coffee and donuts for vendors as well as hot and cold lunches. Prices to the public are $7 for adults and $3 for kids under 12.

Tony Stetsko is the featured speaker. The seminars don't appear to have much if any flyfishing content but the schedule for presenters is not complete yet.

I attended last year w/ my dad. Save for Old Salt Outfitters, there was little flyfishing content, but it was a fun show nonetheless. Dad picked up some sluggo bodies & we did some browsing.

If I'm home that weekend, I'd be glad to pitch in some time at the booth as I'm only a few miles from Cordage Park.

Gregg... that's interesting.. seems like a perfect place to be a proponent of flyfishing and tying . But it is a committment so we would need some definite volunteers.

...By that time I'll be a card carrying, fully sanctioned, officially recognized ORF (Old Retired Fart) and could probably squeeeeze "booth duty" into my "busy" schedule....
...Will they be serving fresh dead bait?!

Looks good for me unless I am out west on my annual pilgrimage to chromer heaven then. I gave a presentation at MSBA last year and the flyfishing topic was very well received. MSBA is a very well established organization and a great bunch of guys, it will be a blast to help out MSBA and represent the flyfishing aspect of striper fishing at this event.

Looking forward to it!

If there's enough interest I would love to come up and participate on one of the days.

It sounds like they could do with some Fly Fishing content so we would be pioneering but, heck, when did that ever stop this forum!

My dad has gone to that the past few years. He said that it is different from the Fly Fishing shows; a lot more Deals on tackle, kind of like a flea market. He said it is more geared toward conventional fishing, but there was some SWFF.

This sounds like a nice opportunity and I would be willing to help out at a booth.

Adrian- Perhaps the Connecticut connection could travel together? Just a thought and an excuse to spend time on the road swapping fish stories.

I think introductory casting (if there's room) and tying lessons are in order, as well as the requisite fish stories and friendship building spirit that makes us what we are.

Can anyone provide details on the park? room to cast?

Greg,

You know I'll do whatever you need to help out. I do have to tread cautiously as my wife is concerned about my promise to complete a few projects around the homestead.

She thinks giving me 6 months freedom to fly fish as much as I want as being generous!! :hehe:

We need to plan on getting our hands on the booth as Juro may be warming up for our Spring season in the Pacific Northwest.
