Cool New Fly Gear!
Each year, the American Fly Fishing Trade Association holds the International Fly Tackle Dealers Show, or IFTD, where they showcase new and upcoming products for the fly fishing industry. This year, manufacturers, sales reps, retailers and other organizations from around the world met in Orlando, Florida to introduce the latest and greatest in all things fly fishing.
Favorites this year included Simms Fishing Products, who won big with their apparel for both men and women (including outerwear and waders). Sage won for best fly rod for both fresh and salt water. The Tacky Fly Box by Tacky Fly Fishing was popular with attendees for its sleek, lightweight polycarbonate box and durability.
