Here various outfitters worldwide can talk to you about your dream fishing trips. They can provide valuable information such as best time to come, best lures, etc.. Also various tackle manufacters will show you their new line of hot products to land your trophy dream fish. Often some of the larger shows will have top pros give seminars on various topics.
