About Appraisals.......

Prices of antique fishing tackle fluctuate with the economy, just as stocks, bonds, interest rates, other antiques, etc., do ....... Although this is just a hobby for me, I will do my best to give you an accurate appraisal. If I am uncertain of your antiques value, I can put you in contact with one of my resources who may be able to help.


I will pay well above an items value if it will fit into my collection.

E-Mail Me:


If you have a lure or box, etc. that you are considering selling and already see it posted on this site. Please contact me, I am always looking to upgrade lures / boxes in my collection, it may just fit in.
