Each year I go to several fishing industry shows to buy tackle.
In a perfect world, when I go up to the booth, I get to talk to the factory, President or V.P.
make a great deal on the gear we need, and go on to the next one.
Only tackle shops have the opportunity to buy this way.
 But now, you have a chance to do the same thing.
Walk up to a booth and deal with the factory direct.
Make your best deals. Buy a little, save a little. Buy more, save more.

This is a very simple idea that Robert and I had 7 years ago when we started this.
I'm very proud to say this is the ONLY event anywhere where this is possible! {well maybe the Bass master classic}
You get to meet the factory people and make your own deals on top-quality fishing tackle.

There is NO other place or time can you get to meet these people and find out why I buy,
what I buy, and why I buy from these companies.
I'm as excited as I can be to give you, our loyal Fishin' Frank's customers, this unique opportunity.
 Each lure company will have its own casting tank. You can watch factory people -- actually, they're
often the guys who invented the lures or who own the companies -- show you how to get the proper action out of their baits.
 And then, you'll get an incredible deal when you buy.

What better than to talk to the factory about what is best, for how you fish.
deals, Savings, 10% to 50% off, the factory are setting the prices, One day
factory sales event. This is real the 7th annual event, NO where else can you meet
this many people in one day who make the tackle we fish with!

tents in the parking lots & vendors in the store! ask anyone who has been here
this is not a gimmick or hype this is a really cool day to save money, have fun and
meet the makers of the best tackle on the planet
