January is a tough month for many New Englanders. We are a long ways away from summer vacation, the days are short, the nights are long, and unless you’re a fan of skiing or snowboarding there isn’t a whole heck of a lot to do. Or is there?
Well, once the end of the month rolls around, we run headlong into what I refer to as show season. It’s the 3-month-long gauntlet of fishing and boating trade shows across the region where stir-crazy anglers and boaters get a chance to ogle the latest and greatest from their favorite brands.
We are doing the usual slate of shows as years past, but we’ve also added a couple new ones to our schedule for 2017 and we look forward to seeing you at these great shows. Below is a look at where and when you can find The Fisherman across the Northeast this winter along with links to our calendar of events listing for each show; see you there!
