Default the international sportsmen's expo, sacramento, ca - 2018

the international sportsmen's expo, sacramento, ca - 2018

the winter sports show season has just started on the west coast and the first one is the ISE in sacramento, california. *think of it as a primer for the fred hall show in long beach. *most of it is actually hunting, but one building is fishing. *i've seen it many times and it pretty much looks the same each year, but if you actually stop and talk to the guys, they have alot going on.



cost wise, it hasn't changed much at all. *parking is still $10, admission is still $15 but there are $3 off coupons everywhere, beer is $12, but after 5pm it's $5 for happy hour, and tri tip sandwiches (meat, bread roll and bbq sauce) with a coke is $18. *some aisles were packed, others not so bad.



on the fishing reel side, there was okuma, penn and daiwa. *notably, shimamo didn't even show up. *i had a chance to chat briefly with each to see what was going on. *meet okuma!

Ditto on the report. Very well done. I and a fishing buddy used to make the ISE/Sac every year, but since he lost a leg, and I've got a hitch in my git-along, we didn't make it... again... This is the second year we'd been planning on taking the electric scoots and doing some catching up. Last year it rained, and this year it was the flu... So maybe next year we'll make it?? Anyway thanks again for the report and helping a couple of O.F's vicariously... :-)
