2024 National Show

Join us for our National Convention in Springfield, IL July 18-20, 2024

Our next National Convention will be held in Springfield, Illinois  July 18, 19, and 20, 2024.  Please join us! Our convention site is the BOS Center – Bank of Springfield located at 1 Convention Center Plaza, Springfield, IL 62701. 

This is a great opportunity to connect with fellow vintage fishing lure collectors – all members who are passionate about preserving and sharing fishing lure history and conserving these beautiful vintage lures and other vintage fishing tackle-related items.  

Each year our members showcase their collections and this show typically hosts about 200-300 tables filled with a variety of vintage fishing tackle from lures to reels, as well as posters, novelties, and other tackle-related items. Lures from the great manufacturing companies of the past can be found among the vast collections, including Heddon, Creek Chub, Shakespeare, Pflueger, and many more.
