Just a note to let everyone know that the The Canadian Antique Fishing Tackle Association (CAFTA) will be holding its annual show in Cobourg, Ontario on
Sunday, June 3 from 9am until 2pm. Ken Kerr writes: "We should have approx.
60-ish tables. For those that don't know, Cobourg was the home of Canada's first lure-makers -- John, T. Henry and William DeLany and was the 'summer home' to many famous and wealthy Americans (including Civil War officers).
As well, Lucky Strike Bait Works had a factory there just after WWll, which made metal parts and was named after Rusty Edgar's girlfriend. The town is old and very pretty, with a large pier on Lake Ontario, and a lot of the DeLany homes, graves and stores are still there."
Note that the CAFTA website has info on the show, and membership information.
