    That old fishing pole got me a thinking. Who collects old fishing stuff? I have 2 trolling motors so far and planning to collect or stuff. I'll take pics when I get back from hunting. So, if you got old fishing stuff post it on here.

    I've got my dad's old rod and reel. Not sure how antique it is, but probably at least 1960's or earlier. I've got some old lures, a guy who used to live behind us gave me back in the 90's. Again, not sure how old.

    I have been trying to find out how old my trolling motors are. I had a chance at a old rod and reel, but had no way to bring it back. Our car was packed. Someday I am hoping for a Man's Room. Display some of this stuff. I got a old spinning rod as well. It has wooden handle in it, instead of cork or foam. Solid fiberglass.

    I bet that if you post afew pics, some of us could tell you about how old it is. Just thinking of all the old stuff I've lost over the years kinda hurts. But then again, it was either late model or new at the time. :whistle:

    I have quite a few old lures, wooden and plastic. I've got several old rods and reels. I've got one or two spring steel rods and a couple of bamboo bait casting rods. Lots of old Garcia reels, mostly 5000's. I used to collect but now I just store.
