You go to a yard sale and you hit pay dirt! You've found an old tackle box just full of fishing items. You can't wait to get home and sort it all out and play play play! So....What did you find?

My sister got me into collecting. She bought an old tackle box at an auction. There was only one old lure in it. It was a 1920's Heddon brand lure. Someone had dipped the whole lure in silver paint. I started chipping away at the silver paint and a half way decent lure appeared. I looked in a lure price guide and I was hooked. Like most other things right now, the prices are down. Now is the time to buy.

Thought this was worth saving so transfered it here!


Sorting it all out can really be fun. Sometimes you can really find something special. Old advertising, cool knife, and if you don't find that rare pirce ....well, just go fishing! Nothing is wasted here.
What a great display! I collect old fishing lures, bobbers, floats, sinker boxes, old rods, mimmow buckets - anything related to fishing. I try and post some.
I can't wait to see them! I love anything old. Fishing related items bring back many memories and smiles. I'm not sure if anything of monetary value here. Yardsale find. I really likes the tackle box itself.
Still waiting to see those pictures!

I picked up a couple fishing lures this week need a little help figuring out what they are, two of them I never seen before. check this one out.
there is no markings on this but pat. p my guess patten pending.

heres another one
this thing has no markings at all in the tail is two small metal balls to make it rattle
That's a rattle fish; first it rattles its' tail and a fish strikes it. Don't let it get into your sleeping bag otherwise you might drown! The one above it is used to catch hammerhead sharks, which is why it looks like one, but it could be used to open your wine bottle if fishin aint no good.

and finally this one has martin an the bottom

Was reading an article, says some antique fish lures in their boxes are worth $5,000. Many worth $500-1,500.
I have several Colorado Spinners on their original cards, brand new-Any value?
