2018 National Lure Competition

The NFLCC will be holding a national lure competition this year at the 2018 National Meet in Lancaster, PA. Any and all NFLCC members are welcome and encouraged to make lures and enter. If you’re not currently a member you may still enter the competition by joining the NFLCC at a $35 charge.

There will be four different classes of competition. They will be:

Open Class – any type of lure you handmade yourself

Musky or Tarpon Class – any handmade lure you made yourself and must be at least 8 inches in length

Fish Decoy Class – Any handmade Decoy you made yourself, No hooks. We won’t be able to test to see if it swims correctly or not. Must have a hanger and fins.

Open Class II - Any handmade lure whether you made it or not. It can be made by anyone. You must own it as all lures become property of the NFLCC.

All Classes – First prize will be $400. Second prize will be $250. Third prize will be $150.
Winners will be judged by a combination of member votes and a panel of judges. You do not have to be present to win. If you would like to enter an absentee entry call or email Rusty Jessee at or 815 474-4807. No fees to enter. Enter as many lures or decoys as you would like.

If you would like to sponsor a class the fee is $1000. Sponsor gets to keep 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Call Rusty Jessee for entry.

If you would like more info or have questions call or email Rusty Jessee.

Should read all winning lures become property of the NFLCC and go to the sponsors.
