National Fisherman

The Rudderpost 

jesJes Hathaway is the editor in chief of National Fisherman magazine and NationalFisherman.com.

 

Yesterday was a big day at Pacific Marine Expo, with full aisles, a huge floor to cover, and lots of conferences and special events, including the World Wildlife Fund's Smart Gear award announcements.

Today promises to be even bigger, as we'll hand out our first Boats & Gear awards during our first Boatyard Day celebration.

We are thrilled to highlight the work of Jennifer Lincoln with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health office of Commercial Fishing Safety Research in Anchorage, Alaska, Fred Wahl of Fred Wahl Marine Construction in Reedsport, Ore., and the 100-year-old wooden halibut schooner Tordenskjold.

If you're in the Seattle area, come by CenturyLink Field Event Center at 1:45 for the kickoff of our Boatyard Day, which includes our keynote speaker Guido Perla of Guido Perla and Associates in Seattle.

If you can't make it today, then tomorrow is your opportunity to compete in the Fisherman of the Year Contest at 1 p.m. Sponsors Hercules SLR and Xtratuf have made it interesting with lots of extra goodies in store for our winners.

We look forward to seeing you at the expo!
