Default The winners at the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show

AFFTA's 2012 International Fly Tackle Dealer show was held in Reno last week and I just picked up the list of winners in the new products awards that I thought you'd find interesting. I'm sure we'll be sharing more details of some of these over the weeks and months to come.
