VALENCIA, Spain, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- SEBILE Innovative Fishing won a total of three awards for SEBILE's new products at the European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition (EFTTEX), the international sportfishing trade show hosted this year in Valencia, Spain.
SEBILE won Best Hard Lure for its D&S Crank, Best Metal Lure for its Pro-Shad Spinnerbait and Best Accessory for SEBILE's Soft Weight System.
New products entered into the annual competition are judged by outdoor press members, wholesale and retail tackle buyers. Awards are based on innovation, usability, design, quality, practicality and value for the money.
This year, 248 vendors exhibited their products at EFTTEX. SEBILE faced stiff competition from many of the largest tackle companies in the world.
SEBILE is no stranger to the winner's circle however. In 2009 in Orlando, Florida at the American Sportfishing Association's International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST), SEBILE won Best Hard Bait for its Spin Shad and Best Soft Bait for its Magic Swimmer Soft. It was the first time in ICAST's 41-year history that a company won both hard and soft lure categories.
At EFTTEX in Rome, Italy in 2008, SEBILE won Best Hard Lure for its Stick Shad Blood Red series.
Based on its three-year winning streak, SEBILE certainly continues to be the most innovative lure company in the world in 2010 and beyond.
"At SEBILE, we position ourselves at the very sharpest leading edge of the fishing tackle evolution in the world today - always there and nowhere else," says company founder, CEO and lure designer Patrick Sebile.
At ICAST in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 16-18, 2010, SEBILE will enter another innovative lure design into competition - the A.T. Worm. "This is not just one more worm. It works on all terrain (why it's called A.T.) and under all conditions. It has unique new features and benefits for anglers," says Patrick Sebile.
