2012 AGLOW Cast and Blast

The Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers’ Spring Cast and Blast in Lewiston, New York was a spectacular event. Hosted by our friends at Niagara Tourism, the 3-day event offered event attendees a chance to experience the Niagara region in Western NY including turkey hunting, historic attractions and some world-class fishing. And AGLOW corporate sponsors never fail to impress. We had opportunities to use some of the best outdoor gear on the market. It truly was a “blast”, living up to it’s name. Thanks to all who sponsored and attended the event. A big thanks to our friends at the Barton Hill Hotel for awesome accommodations and Matt Yablonsky from Wet Net Charters for getting us on some serious fish!
