Fred Hall Show in Long Beach is the biggest retail show in the US.

It is at least 10 times bigger than RI show and draw lots of fishermen for 5 days.

 

We setup our Black Hole USA booth until 6:00 pm without lunch. 

But it was good to have a margarita with good friends after work. :)

Glad we rented a condo instead of staying at a hotel. It is so nice. It looks we have a vacation in gorgeous weather. :)

The show was great for us not because we sold more rods/blanks this year, but because the positive responses from West Coast fishermen we got.

This show gave us opportunity to check what other rod makers offer and what West Coast fishermen like.

We got more confidence our Black Hole rods/blanks have a bright future on the west Coast as no other rod makers make rods/blanks like Black Hole does. Light, Thin and Strong. We sold quiet amount of rods/blanks to West Coast fishermen for several years and no a single rod came  back to us for breakage yet. 

we noticed that West Coast fishermen like 7'6" - 8' one-piece rods/blanks.  No problem. We are going to introduce 7'6" - 8' one-piece inshore rods this year.

 

Our staff were just great and we had lots of fun together.

Wonder woman Jen. Her fight with giant on standup inspires many fishermen.

Scott becomes a expert of giant fishing on standup after he landed more than 50 giant in PEI and Cape Cod last three years.

Many who are interested in giant fishing came to our booth to talk with Scott.

Mel and Rosie came to our booth to help us even they are busy.  I am lucky to be their friend. :)

Kil,

 

What a great time we all had.  Such a joy to hang out with the Black Hole/JigNpop family.  Black Hole Rods are easy to sell as they almost sell themselves with their quality, engineering design and asthetics. I look forward to hanging out and fishing again together soon.

 

Jamie

Thanks kil for the nice photos, The show was a anglers dream event, This looks like the 1 stop shop where everything a angler need is at 1 location, I am a proud owner of a Black hole cape cod special 350g jigging rod and I love it, Hey Kil was there any show specials on B.H. cape cod special rods with blanks already assembled or where the show specials for blanks only???
