I cannot stress enough that this show is an annual sellout so the quicker you can finalize your plans the better. This is a wonderful venue for the entire family located on the edge of the Smoky Mountains. Lots of things to do and lots of great eateries. We call this a "Mountain Reunion" 'cause this show is supported by the best folks you will ever meet and is truly a place to make life long friendships while adding to your collection. A  200 plus table show, it has been chosen best two day show of the year in the NFLCC on many occasions. Hope y'all will join us.

February 5 - 7 , 2015 - Cardiff, California
Seventh Annual Southern California Tackle show and Swap Meet
February 5-7, 2015

We are once again having a room trading/Show/Sale/Trade Tackle meet for all interested Southwestern tackle collectors or anyone else that wants to make the trip! The meet will start with room trading on Thursday afternoon February 5 and continue through Friday night (public welcome 2pm-7pm), followed by a show/sale open to the public on Saturday, February 7 from 8AM-2 PM. Room trading will be held at the same location as previous years, the Holiday Inn Express at 1661 Villa Cardiff Dr. in Cardiff, CA, just north of San Diego on I-5. The Saturday morning show and sale will be held in the auditorium of the Ada Harris Elementary school just a couple blocks away at 1508 Windsor road. Cardiff is near the beach and there are plenty of assorted activities to interest family members as well as a liberal supply of great restaurants.

The Holiday Inn Express is setting aside a block of 20 double rooms with plenty of room for tackle, with cost of $85 plus tax per night and includes a great breakfast, free parking, exercise facility and pool/spa. They have been liberal about adding rooms if we fill out the 20, so the more the merrier. Contact them at your earliest convenience to reserve a room. The block of rooms will be held until two weeks prior to the 5th, so be sure and register before January 24th to ensure that room rate! You can contact the hotel at 760-944-0427 and indicate that you are with the "Fishing Tackle Show" to ensure you get the rate and room location. Be sure you are talking to the front desk of the Cardiff hotel because the global reservations will be clueless about the show!

Contact us if you wish to reserve one or more tables for the Show and Sale on Saturday morning. Cost is $30 per table to offset the auditorium and table rental fees. Entry is free. Email us with any questions or comments and for table reservations: John Elder (; phone 619-997-8270) or Mark Edson ( ; 619-972-3488). We look forward to seeing you and another great show!
