It’s Time for ICAST 2018

It’s the second week of July. ICAST 2018 is here, and Temple Fork Outfitters will be among the vendors at the world’s largest sportfishing tradeshow.

TFO has participated in ICAST since the 1990s, an annual event the company looks forward to every summer.

“ICAST is an opportunity for TFO to identify industry trends, to evaluate response to our new offerings and to socialize with our many dealer and industry friends,” TFO Chairman Rick Pope said. “We expect to leave the show with clearer expectations for TFO business through 2019. This is the 24th year that TFO has participated in ICAST, and each year we’ve welcomed the opportunity to showcase our products and meet with our distributors and customers.”

The four-day, Orlando, Fla. affair allows companies in the fishing industry to personalize their products while meeting a wide-range of anglers, from those who design the gear to those who run the companies. All share the same passion for the outdoors.

“While it’s true that ICAST is the perfect annual opportunity to spend time with old friends and business partners, as well as to cement new relationships, for me there’s nothing better than meeting folks attending for the first time,” TFO CEO Frank-Paul King said. “The combination of joy and bewilderment they feel is the perfect chance to talk about the size and breadth of the fishing industry and the role we all play in ensuring great fisheries for generations to come.”

Feel free to stop by the TFO booth. You can try out rods and talk to members of our advisory staff.

Our hottest new product is the Axiom II Switch rod, which recently was recognized as the best new product in the fly rod category at the EFTTEX (European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition) show earlier this summer in Amsterdam. The AII casts like a dream. Try it for yourself at the ICAST casting pond!

Other new TFO products worth a look ae the Pro II two-handed series, the Finesse Trout Glass fly rods, the Bluewater SG fly rods, the Seahunter spinning/casting series and the TFO Inshore spinning/casting series. TFO advisors Wanda Taylor, Ed Jaworowski, Jake Jordan and Rob Fordyce helped design a few of these products. Other TFO advisory staff expected to stop by ICAST are Flip Pallot, Bob Clouser, Larry Dahlberg, Nick Curcione, Rod Harrison, Gary Loomis, Cliff Pace, Gary Dubiel and Blane Chocklett.

All are scheduled to be at the TFO booth and available to provide additional information and insight on TFO products.
