The Casting Ponds.
The place to be (and be seen) at the show, this year IFTD will be home to two casting ponds—double the space to test new rods—and double the advertising space for exhibitors. The Casting Pond Banners, circling each pond, offer easy advertising for those with booth space—get your name out there!
And speaking of the ponds… The Pond Hog Hero, historically only a distance event, will now incorporate a finesse aspect in the form of accuracy. (The rod used will be a 3-wt. and everyone casting could be using your rod… another opening for sponsorship and product placement!) Without a doubt, the center of IFTD is the casting ponds, culminating with the New Product Showcase Awards presentation during the Party at the Pond.
