Just wondering if any does collects vitage fishing gear, I have some I have found over the past few years. I have two steal fly rods from the 1940's and on bambo rod fro the 1920's and to older reels one fly reel (1920's) and a spinning reel not sure how old. I also have a few lures, I am hoping to get more stuff over time and was wanting to display them in a case one day. Here are a few picture of what I have the rod anyway. Let me know wht you have or what you think of my stuff.

Hey CPR I have a few older things I found at yard sales and things not sure if they are worth anything. But I though they were neat so I bought them, I will try to post pictures of the mostly lures. Not really into collecting them though, maybe when I get older.

I got into some older conventional reels about a year ago. Nothing really pricy just stuff that I could rebuild and use but had a vintage flare. Mostly Penn stuff. Those reels are a whole other discipline it seems. Some guys swear by them though.

I don't know if its bamboo or cane. Its a mahogany color, 6' with brass reel seat. Turned butt end. The rod is octagon in shape and it's two piece. All the wrapping is intact on all the guides. My neighbor gave it to me. He says his uncle bought it in the 30's and never bought cheap stuff. No identification as I recall. I would like you to see it up close Jeff. I also have a couple other rods he gave me and I would like your opinion on their condition for possible overhauling?
