Since I was a kid, I've been fascinated by antiques and history. And, I've loved to fish as far back as I can remember. Thirty years ago, I bought my first angling antique (a 4 Brothers Sentrie reel). and the two interests became one. And, by the way, if you like to fish, use antique gear once in a while. It's a blast, catches fish, and can be cheaper than fishing modern gear.
I'm a collector, long-time member of the NFLCC and ORCA, show host, and past club officer. I became a part-time vendor, about 25 years ago, to thin out my evolving collection I thoroughly research each vintage angling item that I acquire. If you purchase an item and want more information about it, drop me a line. By necessity, the store descriptions are brief.
I try to keep a sales stock that includes something for all varieties of collectors, from "Old as Dirt" to "newer than Apple." There are lots of nice example pieces here, as well as some items that are likely "one of a kind." It will take a while but when the store is fully stocked, it will contain reels, lures, rods, artwork, and ephemera. I hope you find something that makes you smile.
