This site started
out as a way to track and showcase our private collection. I have been addicted to fishing,
since I was five years old. I can still remember the first time my parents took me along with
them on a trip to the lake. We started out fishing for crappie and catfish as they were
typically the best eating and relatively easy to catch. As I got older, we started fishing for
just about every species there was available in our local lakes, rivers and streams. It became a
great family pastime and eventually developed into a huge hobby. These trips created memories
that I will cherish forever. Today I'm still interested in tournament fishing for largemouth
bass and always look forward to the next trip out.
As a result of a
love for the sport of fishing, we started collecting all types of fishing memorabilia tackle,
fishing rods, reels, lures, flies, catalogs, boxes and just about anything related to fishing. I
am always interested in any antique fishing lures and boxes from companies such as Heddon,
Pflueger, Creek Chub, South Bend, Shakespeare, Moonlight, Paw Paw, Keeling, and many other
smaller miscellaneous old lure companies.
I am always
looking to add to my collection of old fishing tackle and would be very interested in purchasing
anything from a single old fishing lure or box, to an entire collection. Also of interest to me
are early fishing reels, fishing rods, ice fishing decoys, catalogs, paperwork, advertising, and
just about anything else pertaining to vintage American fishing history.
If you have old
tackle that you would like to discuss, please email pictures, descriptions and any other
information to me at the email address provided.
