Showing off at the local mini fishing fair

On Saturday, we will show the ICROSS for the first time in public.

It's the local mini fair held by the excellent out-door store Cykel och fiskecenter in our home town Skellefteå, Sweden. If you’re in the hood, swing by and try out the ICROSS. No waders needed.  We’ll be there from 10:00 to 14:00.

UPDATE - this is us at the fair. A big thanks to everyone who came by.

In the pre-ICROSS era

We found some old 720p footage of our friends – Mattias and Johan – excelling in the fine art of deep water tailing.

It's from the pre-ICROSS era, when we had to depend upon bridges for crossing water. Nowadays it's like the same: same but quite different.

We're ready to go!

We managed to get our hands on some open, running water this weekend. It was about time, because the final prototype just arrived.

And you know what, it worked like a charm. High floating. Easy to control and it fits perfectly under your arm for effortless carrying (if you don’t want to use the straps for carrying it like a back pack). This is just about how we, in the beginning of salmon season 2016, wanted a river-crossing-device to handle. Happy days :)

 Stay tuned, because on April 1st, 2017, we start taking pre-orders of the Icross 1260 and 1410.

NEW PROTOTYPE

In late October we RECEIVED another prototype of THE ICROSS. We are 100 percent confident that the product is a game-changer for the way we fish and experience fly fishing.

But everything as to be perfect. It needs to be 100 percent tuned for fly fishing. Attention to detail, as they say, is vital. This ICROSS didn’t measure up completely. So we went back to the drawing board.

TRYING OUT THE FIRST PROTOTYPE

On 21st of June, 2016 we tried out the first prototype of THE ICROSS. Or well, to be honest, we went fishing with a strange looking piece of equipment in the back of the car. 

The embryo of the ICROSS did the work and we got to a beautiful 100 centimetres salmon on a stretch of our home river we had been fantasising about for years. Yeah, we know it's hard to see both fish and fisherman but it's because we had just one prototype and the photographer was left on the bank. And one more thing, this prototype was mess. Not safe. Not simple. But in terms of getting into a salmon it was just flawless.
