Just returned from ICAST

Recommended Posts

I just returned from ICAST- HMMMM Ive gone 19 times now where they claim record numbers- The show definitely seemed smaller this year -Maybe because the fly fishing section was not there.

Didn't really see anything that blew me away--20 different kayak companies- same old lures- Spiders-HMMMM -Tons of different clothing lines such as shirts- The show highlights were the technology growth in trolling motors and sonars. That's where the industry is heading. Good for them -very interesting. Same ol rods and reels- blah blah blah

 I spent time with Roland-Shaw and others but my highlight was actually spending time with Steve "BIG O" Parks - For some reason we have always bonded and have total respect for each other.  I think the highest praise you can give to a man is - He is a gentleman-  We have great conversations.  If the industry had more guys like him-It would be a much better place.

 

Otherwise it was a nice show-  Oh Glenn did smack me then walk away  -wretched

Last Classic I attended I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Steve Parks.

 

He is a true gentleman and an excellent ambassador for bass fishing.

 

He gave me some of his plastics which blew me away. I did not ask for them. He just wanted me to have them.

 

That was the Classic in South Carolina where I saw you for about 10 seconds to say hello. You were swamped by other guys and I did not want to get in the way.

 

And yes, that Garmin trolling motor is really great. I thought it was the best of show when I saw it. Now for the other trolling motor companies to jump on what Garmin did and we have a trolling motor war. Sounds like fun to me.

 

Take care.

I wanted to talk to you, but you were pretty engaged in the conversation you were having with the other 2 gentlemen, and I needed to jet to my next meeting.  I didn't see you after that.

So was it the type of smack that NFL players give each other,

or is there a "fisherman's smack" the rest of us need to know about? :D

HMM NFL SMACK?????  - HMMM if I wasn't talking to the two largest companies I do business with I would have Dusty Rhodes- The Rock- Stone Cold stunnerd him right in the middle of the isle-  Then would have climbed up the Lowrance tower and Super Fly Jimmy Snookad  him for good measure. I went looking for him but like the money we spend on fishing equipment -He was gone.  Same would have happened to that Mike BullSH&^ Bucca -   -but he didn't show up- Hes on my list as well
