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.
Be sure to swing by our booth for a great deal on subscriptions and a copy of our latest issue, which features our 2009 Highliners, Linda Behnken, Kevin Ganley and Joel Kawahara.
While you're there, check out the varied offerings of the conference program, keynote presentation and the always popular Fisherman of the Year contest.
