WANTED: Pre-1960 fishing lures and tackle. I keep an eye out for old bamboo split-cane fishing rods and old tired tackle boxes, especially for fly fishing. I have fished since I was a kid, and love to find old jumbled tackle boxes at garage sales. Nice fly rods are more natural to fishing. I'm not a serious collector. If the price is right, I'll be interested in just about anything. Pflueger all metal reels sought, too. Thanks.
THERE ARE A VERY FEW FRUIT CRATE AND CIGAR LABELS WITH FLY FISHING THEMES. Some of these are available for sale. There are also many canned food labels which feature fish and fishing, ships and boats. Let us know what you're looking for! I'll trade a few fishing labels for your fishing gear.
