My dad, son and father-in-law and I made it out to the 2016 BC Boat & Sportsmen’s Show / BC Hunting Show today.
I was here last year with my son Asher, so I’ll call this the 2nd annual St. Mars’s sportsmen show. It’s always a blast to see the new tackle coming out, talk with the local fishing guru’s and scope out some great deals! If your’e looking to spend some money on a new rod, reel or any tackle, this is a great opportunity, especially on the last day (tomorrow), you should be able to negotiate some great deals.
Speaking of deals, at the Army & Navy booths they had a sick deal on a great river combo: Shimano Calcutta 400b & 10’6 Shimano Convergence combo for $350 (see photo in gallery below). Typically a new retail Calcutta 400b is around $300-$350, and the Convergence rod is around $90-$110. If you’re looking for a great starter combo, you can’t find much better than this. The Shimano Calcutta & Convergence are great products.
Here are some of the photos I snapped with my phone. Tight Lines!
