An absolute homemade little gem.

Post by Tonytoned » Mon Sep 02, 2019 9:30 pm

Hello Everyone

:Hat:

In one of the lots I won at the Netherhampton Sporting Auction on Saturday, I found among all the stuff this little gem, a homemade wooden tackle box with a profile of a game fish also made of wood on the lid, when I opened it up I found some lead moulded devon minnows, some stainless booms and some lures.

I just think it is one of those unique items, which there is only probably one and the history that goes with it. "Priceless"!

What a lovely looking Tackle’s box - The ageing patina is wonderful - I am a tad envious Sir!
