This was my second year attending the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, commonly referred as ICAST, the world’s largest sportfishing tradeshow produced by the American Sportfishing Association. More than 15,000 people walked the 220,000 net square feet of exhibit space at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. While most attendees (primarily wholesalers, retailers, representatives of manufacturers, government agencies, media, and fishing pro staff) walked the aisles looking for the latest and greatest in fishing, I was on the mission to find the latest and greatest in outdoor gear. Enjoy the outdoors with these 8 finds from ICAST 2018 or consider this your holiday gift guide for the outdoorsy person in your life.
Who heads to the beach on a Monday evening? This gal. It’s so #TravelprAna. And if you live within a stone’s throw to a beach, I highly recommend you take advantage of an evening seaside stroll for a good dose of Vitamin Sea.

Finding the perfect 50th anniversary gift for my parents was difficult, but once I found it, it was so easy to execute and Casey Kasem would agree it was a hit. The gift encapsulated my gratitude and appreciation for all they’ve done for my siblings and me and to this day, they continue to give. Before I share what this chart-topping gift is, let me briefly give you a glimpse into my childhood.
A subscription box, by Wikipedia’s definition, “is a recurring delivery of niche products.” There’s a slew on the market and my first box was for Birchbox, where I received makeup and beauty samples. Over the years, I have tried some of the best subscription boxes, ranging from health and fitness to healthy eating to fly fishing and now, I have tried one for those who love to travel.
Looking for awesome Wonder Woman jewelry? C’mon. Don’t make me use the Golden Lasso on you to tell the truth! I have a hunch, when you were a kid, you were a fan of Wonder Woman, too.
Just as there is no crying in baseball, there is no crying on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Yeah, well, I’m here to confess I did just that. Straddling 500-some pounds of hot metal between my legs on a cool December evening, I sat bawling because I accepted reality – I am not coordinated enough to drive a motorcycle.
As I sat down today to list the books I read during 2016, I realized, I’ve been a slug when it’s come to reading books. I mean, I think 2016 is my year of illiteracy and in part, I blame social media.
