Custom Tackle Builder Convention??

7 posts in this topic

I'm new to this board and have been reading many interesting post. I just really mess around with old store bought cranks. Paint..AT..a few, add some weight , etc. but am becoming more interested in doing more work on some baits. Does there exist some type of custom tackle builders convention, get together or what ever you want to call it?

Hello Steve, I am from Alabama myself and as far as I know there arent any type conventions or get togethers of any kind around here.I wish there was because I would surely check it out.I dont think there are many folks in Al. that do this and it surprises me because we have probably the largest population of fishermen and sportsmen as anyone in America because of our abundant resources we have here.If you ever hear of any let me know.Sounds like something good for B'ham or H'ville to look into.

Found this old post. Did this idea die off? For me this would be great to get new ideas and learn.

Dang Nathan I just came back from the northeastern part of Tennessee. If your around that region I could have looked you up. With the weather we had, it would have been hard to come off the water but I would have.

Take care,

Dale

We  had several get togethers over the course of 5-6 years... We had builders from Australia and England attend as well as several states represented through the years...Towards the end we had about12-15 attendees over the 3 day event..We haven't had any in about 5 years...I'm thinking I may have another one this next spring..Nathan
