The Antique Lure and Vintage Tackle Show presented by the Buckeye Lake Area Civic Association (BLACA) will honor the fishing heritage of Buckeye Lake and foster an awareness of lure and fishing tackle collecting that preserves these items and the fishing history of those who enjoyed and used them. Buckeye Lake was surrounded by fishing cottages and fishing clubs from the early 1900’s through the 1960’s. It is an opportunity to open Grandad’s Rusty Tackle Box and enlist the expertise of collectors to help you understand the magical hours spent at the Lake fishing in days gone by. In addition to enjoying the displays, you can have your tackle appraised as well as buy, sell, and trade with other enthusiasts. Come, step back in time, and enjoy the camaraderie of others who enjoy fishing tales of another era! Admission $5, Veterans $3, and children are free. Display Tables $20 each.
