Bonefish & Tarpon at Somerset Fly Show

Hey folks,

Just a heads up that Bonefish & Tarpon Unlimited will have a booth at the Somerset, NJ Fly Fishing Show, January 25-27. Please stop by to say hello, and to help out with BTU's efforts towards supporting needed research and conservation for these great gamefish. We'll have daily raffle prizes (books, hats, rod&reel) for folks that sign up as members or sign up for our email newsletter. I'll be making the sacrifice by freezing off my thin-blooded butt in New Jersey in January, so please make a point to stop by if you're at the show. Maybe you'll learn something about bonefish or tarpon that you didn't know before.

Aaron Adams
Director of Operations and Research

Re sponsors - yes, BTU is a non-profit. And one without an advertising budget, so this is close to the extent of our advertising forums, plus word of mouth, nice magazine editors, web sites posting links, and the upcoming show. Best to put the $ into research, education, etc. Thought about doing Marlboro instead, but NJ has more bodies.

Yes, Juro, I'm in it pretty deep. Pretty much 2 jobs, (1) research, (2) BTU Director. Still find some time to fish, though Hope to make it up to the Cape in June, will see if that works out.
Speaking of fishing and research, if/when you or any of your co-conspirators go to a bonefish destination and want to help out by taking some fin clips for genetics work, let me know and I'll send fin clips to you. Why genetics? - 2 species of bonefish have been caught on the Caribbean flats, can't tell apart physically (well, bonefish can, of course). Will also help with figuring out population dynamics.

Oops, should've been "I'll send fin clip KITS to you."
