Have you ever wondered about the value of that old tackle box your grandpa left you? Or what about that old rod and reel combo gathering dust in the attic? Or perhaps that vintage outboard in the back of the garage? Well, here’s your chance to find out.

Announcing the 28th Annual Daytona Beach International Antique Tackle Show, hosted by the Florida Antique Tackle Collectors (FATC), February 22 – 24, 2019. Truly an international event, this show attracts collectors from around the world — all attending to buy, sell and trade vintage fishing tackle.

This unique exhibition will be held at the historic Plaza Resort & Spa, beachside at 600 North Atlantic Avenue, Daytona Beach, Fla. There you will see more than 7,000 square feet of vintage tackle displays, including rare lures, reels, rods, creels, and other fishing related memorabilia and ephemera.

The public is welcome to attend at a nominal cost of $5 per adult, children under 12 admitted free. Once inside, visitors can either browse or buy from the many show vendors, or receive free appraisals for their old tackle and other fishing related items. Those interested in selling are welcome to consign their items to the Saturday night auction, where hardcore collectors bid aggressively.

Public show times are Friday 11 a.m. – 4p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. For press passes, directions, and additional information, contact show host Mike Hall (904) 424-7071, email flalake@aol.com

The FATC is a non-profit organization interested in the preservation of vintage fishing tackle and committed to educating the public on its rarity, collect-ability and historical significance. To see our mission statement, please visit www.fatc.net.
