I finally managed to get the last group of ICAST/IFTD photos captioned! I still have more that I haven't posted yet, I'm going to try to highlight some of the booths that I really liked at the show. Hopefully these pictures will tide you guys over for a while!
Enjoy, like, follow, subscribe, and comment!
Thanks, Tight Lines!
I know I promised to caption these photos once I got home from the IFTD show. I'm still working on it, I promise. Things have been busy here since returning from Florida. So, as consolation, I offer up more original photos from the 2014 IFTD and iCAST show. Please enjoy!
|Native Watercraft had a bunch of their kayaks on display. They almost look like canoe/kayak hybrids!|
|Speaking of hybrids, these little hybrid kayak/drift boats from Nucanoe looked pretty sweet!|
|TFO had a booth jam-packed with rods. I loved the look of all these different grips lined up in the rack.|
|Hobie Kayaks, the kayak you pedal! The new tandem model they introduced looks like it could be an awful lot of fun!|
|It was nice to see a booth from Georgia DNR at the show.|
|This map shows all the fishing related companies that call Georgia home. I was tempted to tack a Suburban Angler business card up near the Oyster Bamboo Rods sticker!|
|The size and shape of these Ion video cameras seems like they'd be more practical for all sorts of sportsmen to record their adventures.|
|I want the camo one!|
|They're about the same size and weight as a chunky little LED flashlight. Definitely on my wish list!|
|WTP, Inc had some really cool looking self adhesive products for lure making, I think these eyes can cross over to fly tying pretty easily!|
|They had too many products to fit the whole booth in one shot!|
|All of the WTP products are made right here in the USA, too!|
|Redington had a huge booth with loads of awesome products on display. I've got to try one of these Butter Sticks real soon!|
|This picture shows maybe a quarter of the rods Redington had on display.|
|Redington also had a nice display of their own reels.|
|A 6' 2" 2-weight Butter Stick, I had to get a close up!|
|A Canadian group called Mouche had a fishing cabin/lounge set up as their booth. Check them out on Facebook, it's a really cool concept of passing on flies on the water that they were successful.|
|Nikko is a soft plastic bait company out of Japan. While not necessarily for the fly angler, the minute detail of these plastics, I think, could be integrated into more realistic flies.|
|The front doors of the show, taken on the last day. I had such an amazing time, I can't wait to go back next year!|
|Just a beautiful truck in the parking lot. Oh yeah, it belongs to the Spanish Fly!|
