Default New England Fishing Show

I just saw an ad for the New England Fishing & Outdoor Expo. It's in Boxborough, MA on January 27, 28, and 29. Go to. NEFISHINGEXPO.COM for more info. Someone said it's the old Worcester show without the door and window salespeople.

The RISAA show in Providence is a lot better for SW anglers, IMO.

The RISAA is always well worth getting to. Can be crazy busy though.

Actually, the show sucks. You shouldn't go until after I attend, it'll be better after that. Lol.

I can taste the crab cakes right now.

I will be speaking at both the boat show and RISAA show this year.
At the boat show I will talk about striper fishing in the white water and the risaa show I will speak about light tackle hardtail fishing.

Stop by and say Hi

Hey Teezer, should make the boat show, look forward to your striper experience as well.
i am already counting down until the spring action in the providence river...last year was nuts for a short period of time with the herring.

RISSA Show in Providence is excellent: March 10th-12th

http://www.nesaltwatershow.com


For the guys in western CT, NY, NJ, the Somerset show is great too: March 17th-19th

.......IMHO, all the other shows simply aren't worth the gas or admission.

We went to the show today. Went to Dave Pickering's seminar on Striper fishing. Great seminar. Not a bad show but we are definitely looking forward to the Providence show.

Went over the weekend, packed with people, but show was just OK. not a lot for saltwater, and honestly not a lot that was "show priced" most stuff was full retail that I saw. Looking forward to the RI show in March.

I know a lot of guys like the RISAA show, but I've never found it al that great for shopping....lots of half assed booths with "stuff" for sale, but not much worth while unless you like random stuff or high-end new gear (which I find can be had for better prices elsewhere).

Now a show with up-to-date gear at great prices....that would be sweet! but never seems to be the case.
