The 58th annual Mid-Atlantic Sports and Boat Show started today at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. No, it’s not the show it once was, when the glory days featured anything and everything related to boating and fishing filled the old Virginia Beach Pavilion and spilled over into tents outside. But it’s a darned good boat show with plenty of new things to see in the boating world. While there isn’t as much from the fishing world as there used to be, several of the area’s angler’s clubs are on hand, as are representatives from the Virginia Saltwater Fishing Tournament and Catchin’ for Kids. And one of the newest and hottest fishing reel manufacturers are on hand. The boys from Reedville -the ones from Innovative Anglers -are on hand with their new Release Reels. Really hot stuff. The show continues through Sunday, shutting down the doors at 5 that afternoon. I know it’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend.
