        My Pop gave me some old bait cast reels. One is made of German silver.

          I think I have a few lures with piranha teeth marks in them. The piranhas would destroy the feathers on our rooster tail lures too.

            About the strangest lure I can remember was the Heddon Mouse. I've never seen a fish eat a mouse before

              Large mouth bass will go for it.

              I've seen a big brown trout take a bat that fell in the water...mouse is just an appetizer.

              I used to see the bass jump in Florida for dragon flies that was interesting

            Nice collection! All I have for old fishing lures is this Busch lure set I picked up at the gun shop about five years ago in the small town of centralia Kansas not to far from home. Couldn't pass it up for 5 bucks I love to fish and love Busch beer so I had to have it lol!

              I've heard of some beer batter fish recipes that sounded pretty good to me.

              When I wasn't old enough to drive there was a shop near my home that you could trade for lures 2 for 1 of his. I did a lot of trading like the lures in the plastic box I think they are pretty old. The creek chub and orginal box i caught my first bass on it at a cub scout outing. You can see it cost $1.75 new.

              Have a dozen or so from 40 and 50s. Some wood ones but most of them have pike bites.

                    I only have one... a triple barb my Standard poodle swallowed whole and then heaved up in the middle of the night. When I realized what he had swallowed I almost had a heart attack! Thank goodness it came up the way it went down!
