    Anyone here collect vintage fishing equipment?

    I am finally cleaning out my mother's basement and I am coming across many things that look like junk but are probably valuable and are of interest to certain kind of collectors. I think there are some fishing things that would be neat for some people. I found some classic Flatfish fishing lures and a fly fishing reel from 1938. Here it is:



    Anybody into this kind of stuff? I am thinking of listing them on ebay.

    When I was in Idaho had a collection of very old bamboo fly rods that I displayed in the store. I left them behind when I moved.

    Try and sell it if you want. My grandfather had one just like that he'd take to Ontario to catch pike. With his vintage bamboo rod, the set was worth around $3,000.
