2019’s top new tackle for Canadian anglers


Every year, the fishing world gathers at the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades Show—best known as ICAST—to show off the latest angling innovations. And every year, fishing editor Gord Pyzer takes on the difficult (but enjoyable!) task of checking out all the new rods, reels, lures, electronics, accessories and more to pinpoint the very best items for fishing in Canada. Below are his picks from this year’s crop of innovative new tackle.

Following Pyzer’s picks, our longtime fly-fishing correspondent Wayne Phillips has a survey of the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show. After checking out offerings ranging from wildly original to elegantly traditional, he’s narrowed it down to his 10 favourites for Canadian fly anglers.
