The 7th Annual Extravaganza And Demo Day

Now in its seventh year, this event keeps growing and growing! There will be tackle representatives, club members providing hands-on demonstrations of different surf fishing tactics and a used tackle swap & sale. A five dollar suggested donation to the CSA will be collected at the door. Donations will also be accepted for chili, hot dogs, soft drinks and more. The event is open to the public so be sure to show up early and bring your friends!

This event originally began as a way for the Connecticut Surfcasters to showcase and share the knowledge of its membership with the general public. In doing so we decided to have a “Demo Day” where in the club members would be provided an opportunity to demonstrate different surfcasting techniques, some well-known and some guarded secrets.

CSA club members with be providing hands-on demonstrations and seminars of a variety of surf fishing tactics, tips and tricks throughout the day.

There will be custom plug builders and commercial tackle representatives on hand showing the products they make specific to surf fishing.

Members will have tables selling custom plugs, rods, reels and other new and used surfcasting tackle at the really low prices that have drawn guys from Maine to New Jersey. In the past members have sold Hab's, GRS, Wood Musso, Beachmasters, Fixters, Pichney, and other collectible and vintage plugs and gear. Plugs built by CSA club members and not for sale anywhere else such as by Billy D and Jay Hanecak.

Great food made by Club Members - always a hit.
