The 16th annual event is an every year happening that thousands of people attend. Weather, the economy, or the the price of gold or silver are not factors when deciding to come sell, trade, barter or buy sporting related items. People come from around the US and Canada to attend this collectibles event.
Doors to the public open at 9 AM sharp. Before this time vendors are busy carrying in from the parking lot on 2 wheelers, by hand, pushed, pulled, or any way required to get their sale items to their assigned tables. If you're lucky you get a wonderful location. Most vendors like the same location every year so the customers know where to find them. I'm no exception. My great table location by the door is the same place every year.
It seems as if every year I have more stuff for my booth, than I had the year before. This year I was fortunate to have original oils by Richard W. Plasschaert at my table. I am an agent for Mr. Plasschaert, an award winning artist in Minnesota. You will want to check out the Richard Plasschaert pages on this site to enjoy his captivating wildlife and memory scenes.
The crowds are always fun, the sales were ok, but the fun seems to out weigh all else. People come just to say "Hello" to their friends and to exchange stories about the past year. In the following images enjoy the sights, sounds, smells that make up Wally's 2012 Fishing Lure Show.
I hope you have a great visual journey as you explore the images of the show... till next time.....Wink.
Wally Wegleitner, show organizer.
My booth looks fuller this year. I did bring new oils painted by the artist Richard Plasschaert. Below is the painting featuring Canada geese.
To the left of the Canada geese picture is the oil of a couple of wild
turkeys. Such intricate work to paint the ground cover.
I hope you have enjoyed Richards new paintings.
Here is a large collection of hunting traps.
