The Collectors Register.

Post by Champ » Tue Jan 07, 2014 8:39 pm

Anyone remember this?.I wont mention any names but it was very well run by A chap who put a lot of time in for it.A little booklet was sent out a couple of times a year if i remember correctly.Members names and phone numbers were on the back.

These people might have been the original chaps that started the Redditch tackle fair.I may be wrong on this.I must have had ten or more booklets so it lasted a while.Pre internet?.

Champ & Right Charlie,
So do I remember. In fact even sadder I still have 22 of the magazines that Bob Turner and his associate printed back in the day. My magazines start in Autumn 1996 and run up to February 2001.

At the time, this magazine and the Redditch Tackle Fair that Bob started was my prime source of information, contacts and even acquisitions. This was before the internet was the power it is now. If you wished to buy or sell it was usually through the Loot or Admag free ads, or the Anglers Mail/Angling Times classifieds.

Bargains could be had but you used to have to work hard to track them down!

Hi to you all on this forum, for some reason I was looking through some old Collectors Register magazines earlier and wondered if a search on the Internet might tell me if they were still around. It was nice to read your comments, yes it was hard work putting the magazines together each month. I spent hours either typing or photo-copying bits of paper.

The National Vintage Fishing Tackle Fair at Redditch was the result of the success of the magazine. My friend Bob Bray and I thought Redditch would be the perfect venue for such a gathering. It was the first such event in the Country.

I have written an article regarding all this, if anyone wants to read it I will gladly type it out one evening.

Anyway, good to be aboard and I look forward to looking through the different threads.
