    Hello Frank, how's things? Hope all is going great.

    I think a class like that would be alot of fun, hopefully someday I can take one.

    I have a few in my office on the walls (reels and rods). I recently found an older automatic reel for my father-in-law for father's day.

    I have over 1,500 old bass lures (pre 1960) and all the other stuff that goes along with this disease. Got started collecting before it became a fad or was profitable. Not much interest now as it is so hard to find anything. And have been seriously thinking about putting a bunch of the stuff for sale on Ebay just to lessen the clutter.

    I've collected some really old lures. They have become harder to find now that people are becoming more aware they have become valuable. Ive also got a few old rods and reels.

    I like the old stuff John; better than the new I guess. I have quite a bit of vintage gear I will remember this thread and post some pictures of old goodies to it soon.

    Good idea Fysh, will grab some out of the shop and snap a few this evening, was hoping the river would be down. I get a water proof camera for Christmas and haven't been able to snap a single fish pic because of the generation.
