    It promises to be a great year. There could easily be 50 to 100 fish exhibited and also a great chance to pick up some quality domestically bred fish

    Sounds wonderful! I wish we had something within driving distance but Alaska is a bit tough that way!

    I hope somebody posts pictures of the event for us. Is it usually around the same time each year?
