If you missed this year's show, you missed the best one yet. Over 100 manufacturers were in attendance being represented in 74 booths. Vendors brought a least 25 professional fishermen with them including some big names in the industry. The fishing Tournament was a huge success with 54 boats participating. Congrats to the winners!
Best of Show prizes were awarded in 8 categories and presented at each vendor's booth by editor of FTR magazine, Ken Duke. It was a wonderful experience to have Ken at our show, and we hope to see him back next year.
We also hope to see you at our 25th Annual Fall Show to celebrate a quarter century!

Sevierville, Tenn. — We all want to fish, have fun and do good business. The Pitman Creek Wholesale 24th Annual Fall Dealer Show, Oct. 9-11, made all three things happen earlier this week.
The festivities started with a 54-boat industry bass tournament won by Bassmaster Elite Series pro David Mullins (Doomsday Tackle) and his dealer partner, Waylon Wheelis of Taterbugs Sporting Goods in Farmersville, Louisiana. Second place went to Crispin Pawley (Strike King) and Jack Watkins of Leisure Time Outdoors in Swansea, Illinois. Third place was Michael Neal (Cashion Rods) and Matt Prichard of Prichard Outdoors in Grayson, Kentucky. There was even a poker tournament on Monday night that was won by FLW Tour pro Scott Canterbury.
