This Tuesday - July 15 - the YakAngler crew descends on Orlando, FL for ICAST (International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades) 2014. ICAST is a sportsman’s paradise, with hundreds of fishing and outdoor companies all under one roof. We want this year’s ICAST experience to be as interactive as possible.

We want to offer the YA Nation the opportunity to have their questions answered directly from the manufacturers. Look through our schedule, and use the comments below to post the questions you want us to ask the manufacturers. Make sure to include your full name, company, product, and your question in the comment.

Example: (Joe Smith - Wilderness Systems - Thresher) When will the kayak be available?

If you are using the Facebook Comments be sure to also include an @yakangler tag to your comment. We’ll do our best to get everyone’s questions answered.
