This year’s shows will again play host to the immensely popular Consumer Choice Awards. These prestigious awards are presented by The Fly Fishing Show, Angling Trade, Fly Fusion Magazine, and Fly Fishing Journeys and serve to recognize and celebrate the outstanding research and development that go into bringing new products to market that continually improve our angling experience. And, as true Consumer Choice Awards, winners will be voted by fly-fishing consumers – the everyday users of these products!
The awards are free to enter and entry is open to all 2023 Fly Fishing Show Exhibitors. Product submission is OPEN now through January 15th, 2023 and entering is a simple online process.
The 2022 Awards represented over 80 brands and showcased 222 products within 32 categories. Best in Show was awarded to Abel Reels who won in both the fresh and saltwater reel category with the Abel ROVE.
“Our team at Abel Reels is honored to have been selected to receive the inaugural Best of Show award for our new Abel ROVE Reel.” said Jeff Patterson, Abel & Ross Reel Director of Sales. “Winning a consumer choice award like this one motivates us to continue both designing and producing the best fly fishing reels in the industry.”
Awards entries will be showcased online and exhibitors will have the opportunity to connect directly with consumers at shows throughout the voting cycle. Likewise, consumers will have the opportunity to see, touch and test products prior to voting for their favorites. Online voting will be open to the public January 20 – March 10, 2023.
Winning products will be announced following the close of voting and winners will receive the prestigious “Consumer Choice Awards” icon to utilize in marketing efforts throughout 2023!
