I am a serious collector of all things fishing:

Reels - older timber alvey and alvey style reels

Lures - older game fishing trolling lures, hooks, tackle, rod belts etc

Lures - older AUSTRALIAN timber lures - cod, bass, yellowbelly, barra, jacks etc

Especially Australian timber lures made by

  • Peter Newell - Kaditcha, Scorpions, Callops, Rats, Bumble Bees, Boxed thumbprint Kaditcha
  • Tenterfield Lures by Trevor McFeeters - Darts (3 sizes), Aussie 200 (4 sizes), Shrimps, Jew Anne
  • Stumpjumper Lures by John Ellis
  • Boomerang Lures by Kevin Clark - including dolls eyes in plastic
  • Deception Lures by Paul Knellor - 8 sizes over 3 models
  • Crays by Keith Baker
  • Merlins by John Bennett

These are just a few of the high end collectibles I am looking for. Perhaps you have Dads or Grandfathers old cane basket

in the garage or back shed, so why dont you have a look and give me a call.

Some of the right lures command hundreds of dollars on the lure market.
