Around this time, every year, the fishing industry comes together at a soiree put on by the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST) to showcase innovations in fishing gear, accessories and apparel. The event also includes a series of seminars oriented around current and trending topics of interest to the industry and anglers in general..
Old Salt attends ICAST each year to keep our fingers on the pulse of the industry and the implications for the folks we serve (anglers) and our ability to represent them effectively.
We’ll download the official app, attend the New Product Showcase, angler advocacy seminars by Keep Florida Fishing & others and look into as many booths as possible to find that special something. Last year we highlighted coolers, sharing our findings with you afterwards. This year we will highlight the “Lure Tank” showcasing the latest in hard and soft lures. What else would you like the Old Salt team to focus on at ICAST? Email us your suggestions at ICAST@oldsaltfishing.org.
Keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of weeks. We’ll be reporting back on the take aways from ICAST 2016.
