Welcome to another season of angling! Although a tad early for actually getting “on the water”, it nevertheless is time to get into the mood. There is no better way to do this than by attending the Annual Fly-Fishing Show.
However, this year there is a change in format for the better. This year everything is bigger and better with a large increase in the number of exhibitors. The Dieppe Fly-Fishing Forum, usually held at the Dieppe Community College, is moving to the Moncton Coliseum, and is combined with the annual boat show and outdoor sportsman show. So anglers will get “three for the price of one”.
And it’s not just for the men. More and more ladies are sharing the angling experience. As a matter of fact, one of the key-note speakers is Kathryn Maroun. She is originally from the Halifax area and currently has her own TV Fishing Show. She will be sharing many of her experiences and expertise during her presentations.
The event is a week earlier than usual, thus the earlier beginning of this column. Everything starts this Friday, March 23 at noon at the Moncton Coliseum/Arena complex and runs through Sunday. Daily times are Friday: noon until 9 p.m., Saturday: 10 am until 5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 am Sunday to 5 p.m. Daily entrance fee is $8.00 Adult, Senior/students: $7.00, with Youth under 10 free. A Weekend pass is $ 15.00
