Upcoming Events

Postby Harold T Durham » Tue Mar 22, 2016 8:54 pm

Houston Rod building Workshop is coming up on April 15 & 16, 2016. It will be at Fishing Tackle Unlimited in Houston, Texas.
April 30, & may 1, 2016 people of the southern part of the US have a chance to get some good crawfish at Lance's Swampland Tackle, best part is the sweets his wife makes. If you are in the area get in touch with Lance he will be glad to see you, and I promise you will have a good time.
Now if you happen to be up in the New York area RODgeeks is putting on an event in Troy, New York. They are going to have a good sale on rod blanks and components, meals will be furnished both days and we are not charging a fee. This is starting to really come together.


If you are making it to lances get in touch with him so he can get the crawfish ordered.
If you can make it to the Houston FTU show or the Troy RODgeeks show contact me at haroldtdurham@gmail.com
