With “ICAST on the Water” started on the 10th of July the largest fishing tackle trade show in the world, the ICAST – IFTD Show. This year the show for angling in general and for fly-fishing are still held in the same, combined location, next year the IFTD Show will move to Denver in October.

The coming three days the trade show will be held in two major halls of the Convention Center in Orlando, with a much “cooler” atmosphere than outside. Below are a few products which may not be available until the Winter or the Spring of next year.
At the water I had the chance to cast with the new Mojo Trout fly-rod by St.Croix. The rod comes in lengths from 6’ to 9’ for line-classes #2 through 7. The suggested retail price in the USA is between 180 and 210 dollars depending on the model, which is an attractive price point.
I have cast the 9’ #5 which was an easy casting tool, I look forward to cast some other models at the indoor casting pools later this week. Website: www.stcroixrods.com.
