You’ll receive two issues of the ultra-high quality NFLCC Magazine each year.  You’ll also receive four issues of the club’s quarterly newsletter, the NFLCC GazetteLearn more. 

Online Resources:  

With your paid membership and a valid email address, you can also access our NFLCC Archive, which has hundreds of searchable past tackle catalogs from various makers and retailers.  In partnership with Whitefish Press, you will also receive free access to the Fishing for History online magazine. 

Membership Directory:

Printed in hard copy, it includes the contact information for all of our current members (including physical and email address, and phone number as available).  The Directory is published once each membership year in September.  (You can opt out of being listed if you prefer.)

Regional Shows:

15-20 regional shows are held throughout the U.S. each year.  Current members may attend as many shows as they like (registration required).  Check out some photos from our past shows and see where we’re going next.  

National Meeting and Show:

Current members are invited to our annual July event, held in the U.S. at a site that varies each year (registration required).  It’s a great way to meet fellow collectors, see interesting displays, attend seminars, and learn about all kinds of antique tackle.  The admission fee for first-time members (new members) will be waived at the National.  Check out some photos from our past shows and see where we’re going next.   

Get involved:

We owe our club’s strength to the dedication and passion of our members.  Become a member and volunteer to help out for a few hours at a show, lead a seminar, write an article, or offer your professional expertise to help us run the club’s programs.


Our membership year always starts on July 1st, and ends on June 30th. 

    • If you join mid-year, we’ll send you the Publications that were already distributed for the current membership year, and you’ll be on our mailing list for the remaining issues. 
    • If you join after March 1st, your membership will begin immediately and will be extended to June of the following year.
