The jacket has several pockets, a storm hood and adjustable cuffs. It retails for $349.95, and the bib for $299.95.   "Sun protection is a huge deal," said Bristol.

‘Dream’ week at ICAST

Jul 13, 2012

I’ve spent the last few days at the tackle trade show in Orlando talking to buyers and media from around the world about my sponsors’ new products for 2013. One item that’s getting a lot of attention is the Strike King Dream Shot, a 4-inch soft plastic drop-shot that my nephew Jonathon used to win the Green Bay Challenge two weeks ago. Strike King is one of the few lure companies that  puts prototype lures in the hands of their pro staff for testing before releasing them to the public.
