Time to start getting pumped up for the Fred Hall Show...what do people know about it? I'm hearing that there will be some significant changes and a different look. Some longstanding booths will be gone and some will be greatly expanded. Who do you know that will be there? I heard today that my buddy John aka Afishinado will have a booth this year for his charter business plus their other business of his wife's designed fishing-related art, catch flags and goodies. Josh Temple will, I think, be hanging out in a booth but I'm not sure which one. I think Mark Wisch and his boat will be prominent at the Parker booth which will be greatly expanded over prior years. Sounds like AC will have their booth again. Who do you know that will be there that people can look out for?

I heard there were some financial changes for booth spaces this year.
I want to say either the cost for a booth went up and/or the SHOW OWNERS get a % of the booth revenue.
I haven't been in 3 years and I was actually thinking of going this year.
I sure hope the cost to get in didn't go up.

I already told Harold not to let you near her. Dont worry you can go hang at Farallon. I think we should have Rob bring the "Magellan" up and we can all go on a real boat!

Bill - I definitely want to go when you go and we should get Bill and Rob as well. It's a TDH annual event :). Those nights are better for me too I think.

Hope to run into lots of AC'ers there!

Hi Rob

You're right, there are going to be a lot of changes at FH this year.Finally all the aisles in the main hall are going to go all the way through, no more getting stopped short and getting lost. And a lot of the seminars/flyfishing stuff is going upstairs. I'm doing a few seminars at the saltwater tank which is one of two staying down.

We will be in the Parker booth which is more like ParkerWorld at 30' wide and 190' long!!! The boat will be there, in fact it's out of the water right now getting fitted for the railing around the motor well and side rails....both of which will add immeasurably to the fishability of the rig in bad weather. The back railing will support fishcleaning/tackle rigging/etc,etc,etc board that will also be a very handy addition.

With these projects done, the rig is complete. I guess I'll have to get out and put all this fun stuff to good use then.

Nice going our your fish the other day,and that was some show on the squid.Your're on a roll so keep it up!!!

Good Luck

Mark

I've taken the day off opening day and will spend the day meeting with friends that I have met over the last few years on the boards....

I know the 2 Bill's and Rob, but have not had the pleasure of meeting you yet....

Frank, Neill etc. - hope to see you guys there. As we get closer we'll try to see if we are going to be there at the same time and we can meet up to say hi.

I understand the Bloody Mary booth will be located right next to Tim's boat this year, how convenient!

Hey John

Remember the wader chicks?

Maybe the all coast booth could have a check in sheet guys can sign and write the time date and how long they will be there. Maybe even a cell number or an all coast affiliation sticker for their shirt for other coasters to
see it with your name on it.
