Tough economy doesn’t dampen mood at Tinley Park Fishing Show
With the bad economy and high unemployment rates in Illinois,
spending money is at a minimum for most of the state’s sportsmen.
However, this didn’t stop people from supporting local businesses
that were present at the Tinley Park Fishing Show. Overall, from
what I saw during my visit to the show this year, the attendance
was a bit light, but all those that I talked to were really
enjoying the show.
Rich Komar and crew run a show that gets better and better with
every year. The show is full of great vendors, charter captains,
and tackle dealers. If you can’t find what you are looking for at
the show then you probably don’t need it.
I was fortunate enough to talk with several of our subscribers
and it was a pleasure to get all the positive feedback about the
publication. It was certainly a great honor to meet with all those
that read the publication on a regular basis and to listen to any
comments or suggestions that they had.
It was a nice way to kick off the open water fishing season –
even if prematurely.
