Tackle Article in The New Orleans Times-Picayune

It's official--the tackle collecting buzz is no longer snowballing, it is a full blown avalanche. Another feature article in a major American daily, this time the New Orleans Times-Picayune, features prominently the NFLCC and tackle collecting in general. Hooked by the Allure by Jeff Duncan is a detailed and interesting piece that also covered the recent Louisville NFLCC Nationals.

There is a lot of press for the NFLCC in this article, and NFLCC Magazine editor and author Dudley Murphy was interviewed for the piece.

Lots to like about this article, but note there is an addendum that is not linked to the web page story. It is entitled Getting Started and features a list of books and web sites on antique fishing tackle, I was particularly pleased that Joe Yates' Web Site and Ron Gast's site were profiled in this piece.

All in all, it was a good week for getting the word out about preserving our fishing heritage and collecting antique tackle!
