The largest West Coast trade show for people just like you is getting geared up in Seattle for Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 19-21.
Although I am sad to miss the show this year, National Fisherman will be well represented by our fearless leader, Jerry Fraser, and Boats & Gear editor/sleuth, Michael Crowley. He's the guy you want to see lurking around your booth looking for the latest and greatest in new gear and technology.
