I was told 500 million 7 yrs. ago @ the flytackleretailersshow. This was from somebody in the flytackle lobby group. Last week, a buddy that might be a good source, said 600mil. I'd be curiouse to know what you find.
I would call a few of the head of marketing @ the bigger companies and ask them. They would know best (they would probably tell you 500-600).
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.
