Fishing isn’t a sport — it’s an all-consuming passion. Ask people who actively engage in the time-honored practice. When they talk about fishing, they talk about it as if it’s the single greatest activity on Earth. This weekend, from Jan. 15-17, the Richmond Fishing Expo takes over Meadow Event Park for three days of rod-and-reel pleasures. There will be seminars with world-class fishermen Gerard Swindle, Larry Nixon, Buster Seabolt, John Crews and other masters of the sport, numerous vendors of gear, tackle and boats, hourly door prizes and activities for the whole family to enjoy. For times, show information and ticket prices, call 336-855-0208 or visit richmondfishingexpo.com.
