The big hitters from North America’s fly fishing industry will be back in force at this year’s IFTD show in Orlando, from July 15th to 17th.
Far Bank Enterprises, Patagonia, Simms Fishing Products, Fishpond, Umpqua Feather Merchants, Hatch Outdoors, R.L. Winston Rod Company and Scott Fly Rod Company are among the industry giants who will be exhibiting at the show, which is being co-located with ICAST for the third year in a row.
They will be intermingling with strong, smaller brands that include Vedavoo Gear, Flyvines, Bozeman Reel Company, Clutch Tactical Fly Rods and many more. At the time off going to press more than 110 companies had booked booths at the event.
IFTD is run by the American Fly Fishing Trade Association and its Communications Director, Becky Edwards, told Angling International: “The clock is ticking towards showtime and we are excited.
“IFTD is our industry trade show and we are eager to bring everyone who has a stake in the fly fishing business together to network, share new products, develop marketing strategies and use the opportunity of sharing the show with ICAST to attract new fly anglers from the traditional fishing world.
“IFTD is our industry show and a once-a-year opportunity to come together.”
Backing up IFTD will be a series of seminars, including one from representatives from Google. Edwards added: “We will also have a second casting pond and are excited to get more attendees on the water testing products and getting that first-hand experience.
“And, as always, the Drake Film Awards, Party on the Pond, Pond Hog Competition, New Product Showcase and Iron Fly Tournament will add to the general excitement.”
