Old Tackle

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one who loves old fishing tackle. Now I am not talking about stuff you

bought 4 yrs. ago. Ancient stuff, 40's and 50's and older, steel rods, bamboo,

solid fiberglass. this stuff just fascinates me.

no your not. i love all the old stuff. dont have a lot. got a couple of old johnson centuries that belonged to my grandpa. not worth alot bu are pretty cool. i can remember fishing with him in the early sixties, the reel would mess up, he would dunk it in the lake and say " it needs a drink, and so do i". it would work great for about an hour after that. after a day of that, grandma said it was time to go to the house.

This is just a small part of my collection, and like you said, most of it not a lot of monetary value, just nostalgia. When I pick up one of the old combos and flail it around a bit, it really makes me appreciate what we have available to us today.

Cool collection ~

I have some older gear and occasionally I break one out put it into action.

I get great pleasure fishing it and even more catching a few decent fish on it.

It doesn't take long throwing those older glass rods, super slow gear ratio casting reels and mono line to be reminded of just how far the gear of today has come.

Still effective but the bass have more of a fighting chance and somehow they seem to know it.

It's like taking a walk down memory lane.

I have a few old reels, knuckle busters, no anti reverse and a leather strap on the back for drag. The line looks like parachute cord, pretty cool, mine are in storage right now.

Heck those Abu's aint old, I fish with 4500c and 2500c's every day. That Summit is mighty fine, looks like a receiver on an old shotgun.

Oh yeah, I love that old stuff. I've collected a few gems over the years. My dad and I have some old rod and reels. Also have some that are older but not antiques. I have 2 absolutely beautiful original Shimano made Lew's. Also have some old plugs which are highly valued, plus some original Bagley & Poes cranks, some that have never touched the water.

The red ones (5000's) I bought in 1969, and the black one, (5000C) I bought in 1971. I bet you aren't that old.....lol
