Orlando, Fla., seems to be a popular stop for the annual ICAST fishing tackle trade show. Organizers announced the first two shows in the Sunshine State in recent years have been outstanding successes, so they’re coming back in 2014 and 2015. Most ICAST shows are held in Las Vegas, but American Sportfishing Association Chairman Jeff Marble noted that a change of scenery has done well for the industry. The show was previously held here in 2009, when attendance was up despite a major downturn in the economy that year. In 2012, he added, buyer attendance is up 25 percent and overall attendance is up 23 percent over last year.
