thanks nobby. The history of all these small firms making fishing tackle in those olden days would make a great book if anyone could ever write it.

Albert Smith apparently were both a manufacturer and retailer trading in Redditch in the 30's and 40's. They produced a catalogue in 1939, 176 pages. There are currently 2 of these available from abebooks.co.uk. Priced at £34.50 and £40.25. Apperently the cheaper version has a number of additional pages added. This could be of interest to the collector.
