American Sportfishing Association Wants AFFTA at ICAST

December 5, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

As a follow-up to our story earlier this week that AFFTA and Nielsen parted ways over their annual fly fishing trade show, yesterday the American Sportfishing Association extended their hand, hoping to lure AFFTA to bring a fly fishing retailer show to ICAST in Las Vegas next summer. “‘ICAST 2010 already offers a large fly casting pond providing exhibitors with a place to demonstrate their rods, reels and lines to potential buyers,’ said ASA President and CEO Mike Nussman. ‘Our Show Committee is also considering creating a special pavilion located adjacent to the casting pond to further assist exhibitors whose focus is fly fishing tackle, gear and accessories.'”
