as to which northeast shows you guys think are cleaner and have really good attendance.
It's been a couple years since I have been to most and I am looking to do two or more this coming winter to drum up more biz.

I have been to fort washington, Harrisburge (too big!), Suffrin NY?, Worchester (always liked that one), and they used to have one in Manchester NH that was pretty good.

Hell, I don't know Jack!
I'm not real familiar with any but I do know that in the near future they have to be for us. I'm curious too as to which ones are the best. Maybe we can team up.

Worcester-- Ofcourse as its mainly a fishing show. We had lots of ppl ask us about guiding bass fisherman.
Suffrin,NY--is a good one cause your dealing with the money ppl.
Springfiled MA--if you go to Worcester then skip this one as its the same crowd.
Erie PA--has a real good show and it covers all the outdoor sports.
My favorite if I want to just talk guiding of bass would be Worcester.. Hope this helps you Jack. I hit these 4 this yr for bear trapping and they are all run real professional and they accomdations are awesome. If you decide to go this coming spring--get in touch with me. I am severing my ties with the current guide service that I am helping out as things aren't going as well as they were intended. My end of the deal is good but the owner isnt the most energetic person I know.

John, this is what I did at the end of 2004 season, I was there for 15 years. This is why I am looking. It may be good to have a 'sit-down' with Tom & Steve, and one or two others around here to see if we can unify our efforts and save a few bucks doing the shows.
My number one driving force, as far as shows go, is the cost of the booth and the 'local' hotels near said shows.

This IS the time to get it together!

Jack,
You may want to check out a show in Salem, NH at Rockingham Park. I think it's mid to late March. It's an Outdoorsman show, but seems mainly geared towards fishing.
