I will be driving, yes driving! to the North Carolina NANFA Convention! I don't know why! :smile: But that means I can carry some merchandise from your favorite native fish shop, JonahsAquarium.com! So you can get what you need with No Shipping Charges! Yea! Selected items will be available for delivery to you at the convention. All orders must be received prior to June 3rd. Orders for dipnets must be received no later than Wednesday, May 30th. Otherwise I won't have time to put them together for you. So please check out the links below and get your order in ASAP. Here are the items I can bring if you order them now. I won't be bringing stocks of anything as I have in the past. Everything must be ordered in advance:
