Unfortunately the Nassau show is set for Today (Thursday) until Sunday.... and I don't know if CCANY will be there.

I plan to be there later today and tomorrow.
I will be at the NYFTTA (New York Fishing Trade Association) booth supporting the wonderful Sportsfishing Education Center.
Please stop by - if not, I will be looking for ya.
Friday and Saturday's show will end at 10PM!
I went today (Thursday night) and visited many interesting booths and I also found Bill Wetzel's session very informative! I recommend it highly for those who wants to learn the fine art of Surf fishing!
I will be there again (Friday afternoon until closing) at the NYFTTA and the Sportsfishing Education Center. Please feel free to stop by and say hello.
I am sorry to say this because of all of the people on this site that have booths at the show, but save your money guys. I haven't been to the show in a few years and now it will be at least a few more before I go again.
There weren't any particularly good deals and not that much gear. The best part was being able to put faces with some of the names on this site. It was a pleasure to meet Bill Wetzel and Capt. Neil again. And now I am a member of NYSFF.
Whatever you MIGHT save on some tackle, you have lost on admission $10, parking $6 and aggravation in getting in. Go to pass the time or meet some of the Noreast regulars, but don't expect much else.
I am really into hunting as well, and still found the show a disappointment. Im my opinion, the best way to improve the show would be to get some MANUFACTURERS there. Put their products on display for comparison and have plenty of literature available. Even the annual show at Sports Authority gets Penn to come to it.
The best part of the show was meeting Capt. Neil and bending a few of his rods, although my 7 year old liked the trout pool. Otherwise, very little quality tackle and a lot of BS. I'll probably pass on it next year.
