It is that time of year for boat and RV shows. If you look around online you can find one close by. This weekend the WYMT-TV Boat and RV show is at the East Kentucky Expo Center in Pikeville (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
I have attended the WYMT show every year it has been held and always had a good time and got to see a lot of nice boats and campers, pontoon boats and ATV’s plus fishing and hunting stuff. The Department of Fish and Wildlife has the trout-fishing tank for the kids or whoever wants to try it out.
I remember when the show was held in Hazard at The Pavilion. For many years we went to the show and got to meet several famous anglers. I have also been to some boat shows in Tennessee. These were very big shows and had several hundred people attending.
At these shows you can see all the latest trends in rods and reels and fishing tackle. Fishing gear is always changing and some tackle company will have something new to see. The new boats and camper are nicer each year and always have something new to see as well. I look forward to going to the show each year. If you can, check out the show in Pikeville this weekend or one coming up soon elsewhere in the region.
