We are scheduled to attend three fishing shows in 2014

March 5 - March 9, 2014
Fred Hall Show in Long Beach, California


Black Hole USA will attend the show. We were going to join the show next year as we feel we are not ready for the show this year.
But we decided to have a booth at the show this year as many West Coast fishermen want to see Black Hole rods.
It is only one 10 X 10 booth and we can not display all rods there, but you will see samples of Black Hole jigging and popping rods, inshore and offshore rods as well as freshwater rods.

March 14 - March 16
Saltwater Fishing Expo in Somerset, NJ
This show becomes a favorite saltwater show in NY/NJ/PA


March March 28 - March 30
New England Fishing Expo in Providence, RI


We also plan to join Florida Sportsman Expo this year.

We were very tired by traveling from NJ and setting up the booth until 9:00 pm last night.
But we are in good mood and are looking forward to meeting west Coast fishermen from today.
Booth number is 504

I met several 360tuna members at the show.
Most West Coast fishermen don't know about Black Hole rods and our mission is to introduce Black Hole rods to them.
Rome was not built in a day and I know it takes time to be recognized. But this is the first step and we impressed many at the
show. bottom line is we are enjoying the show tremendously by talking with other fishermen and introducing Black Hole rods
to them.

The Fred Hall Show is finally over. We are exhausted after the long show, but we are very happy to attend the show this year as the responses were great. Besides, we met old West Coast friends and made many new friends at the show.

Omelette Inn becomes our favorite for breakfast.

We are exhausted to prepare NJ Somerset Show only two days rest from Fred Hall Show.

Black Hole USA drew lots of crowd. We didn't have most samples of inshore rods we are going to introduce this year, but nonetheless, the responses are great. We are going to expand the Black Hole USA booth next year.

We displayed the whole lines of JM rods and it gave an opportunity to fishermen to see/feel JM rods. JM makes great rods, but I believe they are still underrated.

IMG_5329_zps3f0ec321.jpg

We decided JIGNPOP no more participates in Somerset Show and we concentrate on Black Hole USA.from next year. It was too much to prepare for Somerset Show right after 5 days Fred Hall Show in California. Everybody is exhausted and I had to work with fever yesterday.
Besides, Knock-off/cheaper products starts to dominate this show.

It will be last time you can see our genuine products at Somerset Show.
