Upcoming Shows

The NFLCC holds 15-20 Regional Shows and one National Meet and Show throughout the U.S. each year.  Our shows are a great way to see interesting displays, meet fellow collectors, and learn about history.  A wide variety of fishing tackle and angling history is represented in the collections of NFLCC members.  Some members specialize in specific tackle companies; others collect tackle from their own state or region.  Many collections are extensive, although most members have modest numbers of lures, reels, or other tackle items.  

Current members may attend as many shows as they like (registration required).  Non-members may attend a show by paying a small Temporary Membership fee, which we will deduct from the cost of membership if you decide to join.

Send us an email at if you would like to have your show’s information added to this list. Please ensure all flyer submissions are in .pdf format.
