fishing shows

by Creekyknees Email

 Now that the fishing show season is upon us, how do you approach fishing shows? Is it just a way to get out of the house, maybe a quick fix for cabin fever or a chance at a deal on some gear? None of those are bad ideas but it can be so much more.

 You can learn from sitting in on seminars, especially if the person giving it knows his stuff and folks ask intelligent questions at the end of the presentation. If you really liked what they said ask for contact information and follow up on it. You may find that you get much more detailed answers to your questions when the "pro" has time to answer at his/her leisure.

  You should take the time to talk to tackle reps and those that design and sell tgeir own lures. You might be amazed at what you don't know about your favorite gear and could be in for a real treat with some of the new stuff.  If you can use your gear in the most efficient way possible, that usually helps maximize your enjoyment of your sometimes considerable investment.

 When walking around, don't just look at the goodies either. Take time out to talk to the"pros" that may be at the booths. If you are polite and catch them when there isn't a lot of traffic you can converse with them and really learn a lot if you ask intelligent questions.

 Whoever  you talk and ask questions of, be sure to thank them. Don't be afraid to ask if you can buy them a coke or something to eat. I've pulled my share of shifts at booths, it often is very appreciated. Sometimes an invitation to dinner after the show is also accepted and can lead to a long term relationship.
