ICAST 2019 in Orlando, Florida is billed as the largest sport-fishing tradeshow in the world. It happens annually in July and for us serves as a yearly reminder to how big a space the fishing industry fills in this world. The lights and glamour, the innovations, and the angling community show up and show out all week long.
Day 3 of ICAST burned as hot as the first two days. I spent the day trying to cover more unseen ground and backtracking to look at some things again. Following is a brief overview of what I saw. In the coming week, I'll recap ICAST with my favorites from the show.
On Day 2 of ICAST, the show officially started. The Hype Train was chugging along and there seems to be a kayak in almost every booth! We are taking over.
Day 1 in Orlando dawned a hot one filled with hot new products. ICAST 2019 has begun! The ‘On The Water’ Demo started at 10am and the kayaks were in the water non-stop until 2pm. This will be a quick pic overview of some of the kayaks I saw on the water. We'll follow up over the course of the next two days with more specifics. Feel free to comment and ask any questions about weight and cost, etc that you'd like answered.
