Raymarine Brings Canadian Sportfishing's Italo Labignan Onboard with Dragonfly


Raymarine has added Canadian Sportfishing television host, Italo Labignan, to its Pro Staff of Canadian anglers. Labignan joins a number of professional fishermen who represent Raymarine and its new line of Dragonfly CHIRP sonar products.

On the air since 1986, Labignan is widely recognized as an accomplished professional angler. He has extensive knowledge of recreational sport fishing in Canada and beyond.

"Because Italo is such an industry pro, we're thrilled to have him represent our new lineup of Dragonfly products,' said Grégoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime.  "The Dragonfly's advanced CHIRP DownVision and wireless mobile device integration will fuel Italo's already impressive 30-year career as a professional and will change his view of the underwater world.'

Dragonfly DownVision sonars employ wide-spectrum CHIRP technology, allowing the unit to transmit more sonar signals with each pulse. This provides anglers the ability to target more fish and image structure.  Raymarine recently introduced its Dragonfly 4 and 5, rounding out its lineup of CHIRP DownVision Sonar systems, including models with GPS and mapping.  Dragonfly equipment will be used extensively in the 2016 Canadian Sportfishing TV Series.
