Tackle Wonderland Revisited

Recommended Posts

I am in search of a rod so,  I made another trip this morning.   I posted about this guys "garage store" almost two years ago.   I picked up a brand new old St Croix pistol grip glass rod,  a Whopper Plopper and a Megabass popper for $60.    If any of you (last time a couple of guys went) want to go,  he welcomes you.   I snapped a few pictures.  The Lew's is made in Japan.  The Diablo rod is made in Germany and is telescopic carbon fiber.  He has an 8' and 10'.   The tackle box in the picture he bought for $100 last night to add to his inventory.    A lot of St Croix Premiers but,  I was looking for at least Avids.  The Mitchell has no bail,  just a pick up.   He had another old Mitchell that the bail could not be closed by hand,  only by turning the handle.   So much to browse,  not enough time away from work to do it...

That looks sort of shady. Where does he get all that stuff?

Not shady at all.  It's a part time business / hobby,  he loves it.   He buys estates,  overstocks,  discontinued,  Craig's List,  everywhere.

Never been to a tackle flea market, huh?

 

Place looks like heaven.

You could spend the weekend and not see everything.   I am tempted to offer to organize the lures in the walls of  Plano 360 boxes for trade.

Now that is heaven.

 

Used to go with my wife to estate sales and I have found some great antique baits.

 

Nice hobby to spend your spare time.

There's a guy about an hour from me that runs a similar type shop.  I haven't made it down there yet, but his craiglist ads have some good looking gear.
