Over July 19 - 22, the American Sportfishing Association held the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, or—as it's commonly known—ICAST. At this convention, all of the biggest and best brands in fishing share their new gear, industry experts demo the products, and exhibitors compete to win "Best in Show." It's basically the dream for those of us who love to fish!
