I believe Teddy is going to have a booth - I plan to go out and see whats different. If I am correct, this is the revamped Bassarama. I was there last year and if I am correct, it needed a little revamping.

I remember back in the day, tons of tackle and boats and everything and it slowly seemed to lose some of the greatest guys.

Hope to see it make a comeback

Anyone else going?

So I went last night as I have had to work most of the weekend on different things. There were many of the same vendors that I had seen at the Bassarama so really good and good to see again, others I wished hadnt bothered to register to be a vendor.

Teddy Carr and his guys were there. I missed him as it was almost time for his seminar. But always a good group to visit with. I did see most of Teddys talk but missed part as I had to meet up with my brother who was running late. If you have seen Teddy talk, he really is good and shares a good bit of info. I now am planning to order a few of the Rebel Wee Craw... Thanks for the tips Teddy!

Grandt rods - almost bought my new rod last night but the more I thought about it - the only thing that kept me from pulling the trigger was I didnt like the colors in the wraps. I know I know - sounds weird but I just didnt like the colors. Awesome rods and a lifetime warranty on the rods - excellent craftsmanship.

Daves Tournament Tackle - should have bought there first. I spent more on some Roboworm softplastics at another booth then I would have spent there. These guys have every type of jig head you could have wanted and skirts - use some of these as patterns for making your own.

Canoe the New River - very interesting guys to fish with - I want a muskie bad and I think this is the river in VA to do it in. Check them out.

These were just some of the highlights of the show - I know I missed seeing a few of you there and I would encourage guys to get it tomorrow and see them if you have the time.

What was also very cool was the Virginia Techs Collegiate Bass fishing team being at the show, alias the 2007 National Champions. Check em out if you get a chance.
Some of you may know Mike Hall from Loudoun VA. He is sponsored by Grandt Rods and is taking the FLW plunge this year. He is an awesome fisherman and Christian and I hope he has an outstanding first year.
This is not new to you that know Teddy Carr but the more I learn about Mr. Carr the more I am convinced he has both his professional and personal priorities nailed down. He is truly a man of character. I just hope I don’t have to fish against him in any of my 2008 tournaments.
The Fisher of Men Legacy Tournament Trail is an Adult / Youth TT. You only have to fish one of the three events to go to the National Tournament and compete for a New 20,000 dollar plus Boat. There are only three events, 75.00 entry fee ea, Lake Anna, Chick, and James. Another great opportunity to get out there and take a kid fishing.
The OCHS anglers will once again be in the spot light. They are being featured in an up coming article of Virginia Wildlife Magazine and I am willing to bet Becky Gore has lined up a few more vendors for their show in March as well. Way to go Orange County.

Sorry guys that I have been absent for the last couple weeks I've been down with the FLU and trying to stumble through my goose hunts made it worst but I didn't want to disapoint a bunch of folks plus Ms. Carr spends money like it's going out of style. Thank you for the nice comments guys. It's really pretty simple I love the sport, I like people, I like to see people be successful and I like to be a part of their success. As for fishing Tx against me or anybody else for that matter remember this; your first and primary advirsary is the fish. Heck I can go down hard boys with the best of them. I look forward to conversing with you guys in the coming year and remember my door is always open, just come on in.
