Do they still have that trout pond at the show? I haven't been there in yrs,i was thinking i could have a multi hookup day there for sure,my son caught his first fish at the show yrs ago,but it didn't taste very good the flesh was pale in color compared to a lake caught rainbow which is pink in color and very tasty,most yrs im too busy fishing while all you fellas are at the show but maybe this yr i will visit the show, met Gary Cooper there one time which was exciting, would love to meet Shelley and Courtney.

Yes they do still have the pond. Not sure which trout farm is running it this year, but it is a hit with the young ones for sure.

Okay, here is my plug.

STS will have a booth in the main building #138 just left of the front doors. We will also have our new 28ft twin engine jet boat parked at the front doors promoting our new Hells Gate Jet Boat Tour Business. We will be raffling a couple trips to Hells Gate so be sure to drop by and enter the draw. I will also be working the St Croix rod booth, Hummingbird booth and doing 1 seminar per day on the seminar stage.  I have a few freebees to give away and still have a few tickets to the show if you would like to enter our draw for tickets. Just e-mail us at sts@guidebc.com and I will enter you in our draw.

Tight lines, enjoy the show,.
