Default A.E. Nelson Creels!!

I'm a true collector an at a young age! Im 25 in a month and have been Dry fly fishing for 18 years! I dont have a ton of money but work hard for every penny. My dad just passed down his fathers A E Nelson Fishing creel. Unfortunately I never had the pleasure of meet my grandpa but he is nothing but a great man and true Dry flyer. Now i dont think im ever going to take this creel out, but god knows i want to. Great day.

Congratulations! Not enough of this kind of thing go on today in this throw-away society.

Thank you! Glad to have found some other serious anglers! It seems like my generation has mostly forgotten the art of fly fishing!

Very kind and thoughtful of your father to pass the creel on to you, take good care of it, it will bring back some great family memories despite never getting to know your grandfather.
