iCast 2014 took place this past week in Orlando, FL at the Orange County Convention Center.  We were fortunate to attend on the last 2 days, Thursday – July 17th & Friday – July 18th.  It’s amazing to see all of the new products coming out for the fishing industry.  This week we’ll offer in-depth insight on the products we witnessed, but broken down into categories to make for easier reading.  Categories will include: kayaks, Paddles & PFD’s, Electronics, Apparel, Fishing Accessories, Lures, and Rods & Reels.

If you’ve never attended iCast, then it’s hard to fathom the amount of products on the market related to fishing.  The show is a 3 day event, and trust us when we say that you truly need all three days to witness everything offered. There’s everything that you could imagine to see; fishing rods and reels, fishing line, tackle management, kayaks, paddles, PFD’s, and so much more.  We had 9 hours on Thursday and 6 hours on Friday to see and learn about as much as we could, and we definitely used every single second.  Truth be told, we could have used triple that time!

There are so many innovative products that are and will be available in the coming months for kayak and SUP anglers.  New coolers, new lures, and new kayaks are but a few of the amazing products.  This week we’ll focus on several of these new items and will break everything own into their own perspective categories giving our readers an in-depth view of but a few of these new products available.  For now, here’s a listing of the winners from the iCast 2014 show:
