ORLANDO, Fla. – Iconic fishing brand Plano claimed two awards for new products in the New Product Showcase at ICAST 2021, with the EDGE Micro Fly Box and Atlas Tackle Pack winning awards for Best Fly Fishing Accessory and Best Tackle Management, respectively, as voted on by an international collection of fishing media and retailers.
“It’s a huge honor for Plano to win two awards in such a competitive field and we are proud of the effort of our research and design teams to produce two products that resonate so well with anglers from all over the world,” said Plano Brand Director Charlie Davis. “Both the EDGE Micro Fly Box and the Atlas Tackle Pack offer new and convenient features that anglers have come to expect from Plano.”
The EDGE Micro Fly Box combines water-tight insulation, rust prevention and superior organization into a pocket-sized package. The EDGE Micro Fly offers three different layers of fly storage with soft pads in the top two levels for tiny jigs or flies and Plano’s patent-pending magnetic Dropzone base on the bottom for nymphs and extra-small flies. A WaterWick divider with a rechargeable, moisture-wicking packet will dry wet flies while the Dri-Loc O-ring seals the box for maximum waterproofing when closed. Add in Plano’s Rustrictor technology that prevents rust and corrosion, the DuraView crystal-clear polycarbonate lid and Plano’s EZ Label system, the EDGE Micro Fly Box is a must have for fly anglers.
The Atlas Tackle Pack takes durable and functional tackle storage to new extremes with the strength of a hard-sided tackle box and the lightweight portability of soft-sided tackle bag. The Atlas Series raises the bar for tackle storage. The strong, skid-resistant, waterproof HDPE base and durable EVA panels as well as Plano’s Dropzone magnetic storage on top makes it easy for this pack to handle all the elements. A bungee cord rod holder, tool holders and water-resistant cell phone storage keep other essential gear close to the angler. Functionality, ample storage space and style pushed the Atlas Tackle Pack past the others.
