That being said, Jason was at ICAST this year with his new sponsor Platypus Fishing Lines. Platypus Fishing Lines did not have a booth this year but Jason was at the show with Stewart McPherson, 4th Generation Family Ownership & CEO, and Mark Nightinggale, National Sales Manager, scouting the show to learn the ICAST floor layout and ideal booth locations. After meeting and talking with Jason, Stewart, and Mark, I cannot wait to see their booth next year because they have already registered to guarantee them a spot at the big dance.
Platypus Fishing Lines has an amazing history. The company was started by George Ross McPherson in 1898. What is amazing about this is the fact that the company is in its 4th generation of operation with a McPherson running the company. Click HERE to read a great article on their Australian history. Here is a great quote from the article talking about the 4th generations.
