Innovation Direct™ Set to Represent Fishing Bobber Invention to Potential Licensees Worldwide

Miami, FL, September 23, 2011 --( Louis Hughes, Jr., a Pennsylvania resident, has contracted South Florida licensing leader Innovation Direct™ to represent his Fishing Bobber invention to potential licensees over the next 4 years. An innovative and eye-catching new fishing accessory designed to appeal to anglers everywhere, the Fishing Bobber sports a unique appearance that is intended to attract both experienced and novice fishing enthusiasts alike.

There will be various versions of the product made available, including those depicting male and female figures on a surfboard. An additional version targeted at younger fishing enthusiasts featuring a figure of a young child or cartoon-like character would also be a possibility, as envisioned by the inventor.

The Fishing Bobber will have functional use as a conventional bobber in keeping bait afloat. However, it will also serve as a challenge and form of entertainment for fishermen utilizing it. The product, which will be completely buoyant, will keep its users immersed in attempting to keep the surfing figure perfectly upright as they fish and reel in their catches. The Fishing Bobber is designed to be durable and will be affordably priced, adding to its appeal.

The Fishing Bobber is the subject of U.S. Design Patent # D599,876 S, which was granted on September 8, 2009. The inventor now seeks a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for him under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the fishing products industry are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize the Fishing Bobber on a worldwide basis.

In July 2011, Mr. Hughes contracted Miami, Florida-based product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent the Fishing Bobber to potential licensees for a 2 year period. Innovation Direct™ obtains the maximum amount of exposure for the products that it represents through participation in multiple and diverse industry-leading trade shows each year. Exhibits that Innovation Direct™ has attended in recent years include the SHOT Show, the International Home and Housewares Show, the World of Concrete Show, the National Hardware Show, Licensing International, the SEMA and AAPEX Shows and the ERA D2C Convention.
