Speaking of new products…
Featured New Products:
Here’s a lead on two new products to be unveiled next week at IFTD by Clear Creek:
Anglers looking for a carry-on rod-holding luggage will appreciate the rigid, protective lower compartment of the Rum City Rod Carrier, which stores at least 6 rods in their socks. The large main compartment holds reels, boxes, tackle and even a change of clothes. Interior mesh pockets keep smaller accessories organized; and the large exterior pockets are great locations for leaders, keys, maps and travel documents. The Rum City is the ideal luggage for carry- on, as it comfortably fits into an overhead compartment.
“For a carrier of its size, the Rum City accomplishes a lot,” says Clear Creek product manager Kyle Steinfeldt. “The traveling angler can now take everything he needs for a great fishing trip in one compact case.”
This versatile Spite Hill guide pack can be used as a lumbar pack and/or a shoulder sling. This bag features two main compartments, magnetic closures, water bottle holders and fully padded adjustable and detachable hip belt and shoulder strap. With the perfect marriage of functionality and comfort, the Spite Hill can carry everything you need and keep you organized for a long day on the water.
Check out the Clear Creek booth #1022 at IFTD in New Orleans for specific pricing information and more details.
