Rapala Product Manager, Henri Eppert (right), told Angling International: “This is great news for our new brand and will really help the marketing of our new product range.
“Eco-Wear is a totally new concept – there is nothing like it on the market. To be given such a prestigious award is tremendous.
“The Eco-Wear Reflection Wader is the first in a whole new line of new products to come.”
Commended in the category was Extreme Fishing’s Addiction Add-One.
Frichy was also celebrating following the success of its Aluminium Fishing Pliers. A spokesman for the Chinese manufacturer said: “This is terrific news for Frichy and has capped a very good show for us.
