The ability to see and handle new fishing gear not yet on the market equates to a dream come true for Sport Fishing’s editors. Thankfully, we realize that dream each summer during the massive trade show called ICAST (International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades). This year’s event—July 9-12 in Orlando, Florida—will amass thousands of manufacturers, dealers, and media representatives for a fishy show and tell.
Although the public can’t attend this trade-only convention, Sport Fishing editors will bring it to you daily on social media. Coverage will continue after the show at sportfishingmag.com and in an upcoming issue of the magazine. However, we knew you’d want a taste now, so we asked gear-makers to share a preview of their product debuts.
