ICAST 2017: Fishing Gear That Caught Our Attention

Join Editor John Geiger in this video report looking at some of the more interesting fishing products at ICAST 2017 in Orlando.


The International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades show (ICAST) is a sensory overload — bright lights, the constant hum of sound from nearly 2,000 vendor booths and more fishing products than a person could possibly see.


The world's largest sportfishing trade show recently concluded its largest event ever. This year's event — held July 11-14 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando — filled 200,000 square feet of floor space with 582 exhibitors, 1,982 booths and more than 15,000 attendees.
