See Us at These Fishing Shows in 2013

Type: All
Region: All
Location: Various

The fisheries service will be attending the following outdoor shows in 2013 and we look forward to meeting you. We will have a presence at the East Coast Commercial Fisherman's & Aquaculture Trade Exposition at the Ocean City Convention Hall on January 18, 19 and 20th. Although this is billed as a commercial fisherman's show it is a great place to stock up on hard to find items such as fish totes, rope, heavy duty gloves and even things like collapsible crab traps, fillet knives and oyster knives.

Our next show that we will attend is the Pasadena Sportfishing Flea Market/Show at the Earleigh Heights Fire Hall in Severna Park on February 16th and 17th. We will be there to talk about fishing, any questions you might have and you'll be able to purchase your 2013 fishing license there as well. Anyone who has ever attended this show knows there are bargains galore and the firemen cook up some delicious pit beef, turkey, ham and oysters.

Finally on March 10th our trout biologists will be present at the National Capital Angling Show at the Georgetown Preparatory School in Bethesda for a one day show. This show is all about fly fishing, trout and other species of fish. There are vendors representing fly tying, tackle both new and collectable vintage items, guide services and conservation groups. There are always fly casting clinics and this year Lefty Kreh will highlight the team of presenters and instructors. Matt Sell of the Maryland Fisheries Service's Brook Trout Program will be there to provide a presentation on brook trout studies in western Maryland.
