Vintage (sometimes called antique) fishing tackle is a hot collector's item and is only gaining in popularity. At the top of the list are old, wooden lures which are highly valued when in pristine condition. There are favorite colors, makers, and styles. Saltwater plugs have a serious and dedicated following. We enjoy these old pieces of history, but I differ from my husband in that I love the battered and worn ones that show the scars of battles with feisty fish and the handling by avid fishermen. I even have one I found on the beach that is barely recognizable. It may show up here sometime in the future as I am totally taken with it.
This Floyd Roman Nike was probably made in the 1940's, maybe 50's. The picture overlays a photo...
I invite you to visit my blog - Nature's Wonders - which is all about the natural world in my neighborhood.
I always wanted to try photography, and my retirement offered an opportunity to do just that.
The natural world is my first love. Here you will find pictures of things both large (landscapes, for instance) and small (macro) that catch my eye. I hope the images serve as a window into the natural world many of you don't have the chance to see. In a sense, I'm trying to create a guided nature trail, sharing what information I have about the subject.
I'm always grateful for new and better information and welcome all input. Learning is food for the mind and soul.
Nothing is ever...
