This year as usual, tackle retail attendees gathered together to decide which new gear is worth to be called “the best”. Therefore, AFTA participants voted for the most successful new fishing products in the market covering 26 categories such as rods, lines, lures, accessories and many more.
One of the winners at the 2015 AFTA Trade Show was a tennis ball sized Deeper™ Fishfinder. Deeper™ was brought to 2015 AFTA by Rapala VMC and won the prize of the Best Fishing or Boating Accessory of the year.
