Some more news from the online ICAST 2020 trade show as it is presented this week on the website.
Acute Angling is Amazonia’s premiere provider of peacock bass and exotic species fishing trips.

We go where others can’t to give anglers a one-of-a-kind Amazon adventure with a level of comfort and service unexpected in the world’s greatest wilderness.
Rio Matupiri – Fly-in, Floating Bungalow Amazon Peacock Bass Trip
We’ve developed a new, float-plane accessed fishing adventure in an exclusive Amazon Indian reservation. Focused on high numbers and constant action for both conventional or fly fishers, this just might be the best fly fishery in the Amazon basin. Wildly aggressive Cichla temensis peacocks abound in this beautiful, hyper-productive, lagoon studded river, exclusive to Acute Angling. This “First-class”, “All-inclusive” trip with the premiere outfitter in the Amazon, is completely “turn-key”.
Douglas Outdoors Sky G Fly Rod
The distinguished SKY G Fly Rod leverages technology in its quest to achieve fly rod perfection. Considered “the ultimate presentation rod” for finicky trout, the SKY G is crafted on a beautiful multi-modulus blank with a moderately fast action.
It’s wonderfully lightweight and eminently castable, and the addition of revolutionary G-Tec platelets takes it over the top. G-Tec is 10 times stronger than steel, and 5% as dense; incorporating this material into the rod blank further reduces the rod weight, greatly increases its strength, and because G-Tec is a highly efficient conductor of energy, adds extreme sensitivity and responsiveness.
Altogether, you’ll find the SKY G offers superb dampening and recovery, near-effortless casting, accuracy, and outstanding durability. Innovative top-of-the-line components include: REC Titanium Cerecoil stripper guides with zirconia inserts, REC Titanium recoil guides, AAAA flor grade cork, a skeletonized aluminum reel seat, double uplocking rings with nylon bushings, and burled blackwood inserts. Includes a plush rod sock and aluminum tube. Lifetime warranty.

First Dart Fly-line and Fluorocarbon
Hinging Reduction Technology Fly-line
Fly-line made with of two vastly different densities (example; S3 belly and S6 tip) has a hinging effect while casting. This is due to the traditionally short (5cm-10cm) transition zone of fly lines. Also during fishing the higher density portion tends to ‘sag’ or creates a ‘belly’, meaning the angler is fishing with a slack fly line instead of a straighter fly line. New for 2020 we offer a solution to reduce hinging effect and better connection to the fly called HRT.

An award winning line manufactured using 100% Pure PVDF material has gotten better with increased strength of 10% compared with is predecessor.
