A.F.W & Hi Seas on our walls at Fishin Franks


This is a very simple idea that Robert and I had 7 years ago when we started this. I'm very proud to say this is the ONLY event anywhere where this is possible! You get to meet the factory people and make your own deals on top-quality fishing tackle. There is NO other place or time can you get to meet these people and find out why I buy, what I buy, and why I buy from these companies. I'm as excited as I can be to give you, our loyal Fishin' Frank's customers, this unique opportunity. Each lure company will have its own casting tank. You can watch factory people -- actually, they're
often the guys who invented the lures or who own the companies -- show you how to get the proper action out of their baits. And then, you'll get an incredible deal when you buy.

It's all happening Saturday, March 14, here at Fishin' Frank's in the front parking lot.
Each Lure company
 gets a casting tank.

 So you get to see the

 owner inventors of the lures
 show you how to work them
 and get a deal when you buy.
 No where else in the world is this possible to do.
 and it all happens here at Fishin Franks in the front parking lot.
