“New Jersey has always been a popular and fun stop on the National Seminar Series, right from the very beginning 25 years ago.” says George Poveromo. “We are thrilled to bring this special edition seminar here, and conduct an information-packed and entertaining day. The amount of cutting edge information dispatched by our faculty teams borders on the incredible. And with our lineup of leading national and regional angling authorities, it’s hard to leave the seminar without learning something new, despite an angler’s level of experience. The fact that we’ve been touring going on 25 years now is the greatest endorsement to the amount of how to and where to information contained within the Seminar Series, and the quality in which we dispatch and reinforce that information to the audience.”
