Misc, Vintage Fishing Items.

This is where we post various non lure or reel related items. Pieces like hook and sinker tins, creels, and other old fishing related items. Fishing is a vast sport with many pieces of equipment needed to catch fish. Collectors pick items like old boat motors, paddles, canoes, waders, vests and many other cool items like minnow buckets and floats. The vintage fishing industry covers all aspects of the sport. As we acquire items, we will post them here for everyone to enjoy.

This 1926 South Bend Catalog was a great field find for us. Sometimes when you dig into an old box of papers, real treasure can be found. This is a great read and full of priceless information.

The 1944 edition of U.S Line Companies "Kinks N Cues" Fishing booklet. 1944 was a year for the ages, as the Normandy Landings would take place on June 6th from the air and on the beaches of France. I cherish this book and keep it in a safe place and always remember those who gave everything for our freedom and never got to look at this issue. We will always cherish the memory and Remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.

This cool Fishing scale is from Chatillon New York. It has a Patent Date stamp of February, 13th, 1912. That is just 9 weeks prior to the Sinking of the Titanic. The Titanic was on it's way to New York when it sunk on April, 15th, 1912.

This Tin of Mustad hooks is in fair shape, with the Key Brand, as with many old tins it's been fishing and is aged with some character.

This card of hooks is a neat one, Made in Longview Alberta by Ken's Tackle Makers for the Motor Car Supply Company. Another really cool piece of Alberta Fishing History. The Motor Car Supply Company was incorporated in 1912 & established a location at 1st Street SW, Calgary as an auto accessory business.

Heddon Winona Float set, Includes six of the very rarely seen 4 1/4” floats, all in at least Ex- condition. Several appearing unused, also six of the large 7” floats grading VG+ to Ex.  The Heddon Winona Float first appeared in the 1928 catalog as the "Winona Celluloid Float" it did not have the coil on the bottom. In the 1929 catalog the "No. 7 Winona Celluloid Float" appears and has the coil on the bottom. The No.7 would be the only size offered until 1954 when the "No.45 Winona Celluloid Float" first appears. The No.45 is the smaller 4 1/4 size and it would last from 1954 to 1960 only a short time which is why they are more difficult to find. It appears like 1960 was the final year these floats were offered. We are happy to have this cool set of 6 each in our collection.

This is a cool 1950's Plano 4200 Water Wave color Tackle Box and Live Bait keeper. This is a really neat set, as you can see the 4200 boxes from time to time, and sometimes the live bait box on their own but we have both together.
