I just picked up a cool old offshore setup. FourBrothers brass reel on an old bamboo two piece rod. Best I can gather is that its from the late thirties to early forties.

Not worth much for fishing, but it'll look cool on the wall in the man room.

Anyone else collect vintage fishing stuff?

I've got some old Penns, a couple of bamboo rds, and some lures. I have a value book upstairs.

The more we just complain...the more things stay the same.

I use to collect old gear. I had a pretty good collecton until it was stolen several years ago. I had the old bamboo rods with the double set of guides, several square metal rods, Ocean city reels with the side drop freespool lever, Penn reels with the leather thumb drag, and a Mitchell 300 with a half bail plus assorted lures. I wish I had them back, most belonged to my father and grandfather.

An old flyreel I picked up recently...I was told it was for salmon. No markings on it that I can find, not sure of the manufacturer. No idea how old, but everything works well.













A little offshore setup, Four Brothers Reel on a two piece bamboo rod. Four Brothers was prior to the start of Pfleuger. Has some incorrect hardware on it, but everything works. Clicker is nice and loud. Best guess is 30s to 40s, but that's just a guess. Haven't been able to find too much....maybe big Wes can help me out.

According to that website, "In 1934, a double-diamond logo including the banner reading Best by Test was introduced and was used until 1939."

So, I guess the rod is somewhere between 34 and 39.

Thanks!!

That is some cool stuff. I have a couple of old reels that belonged to my Granddad, Shakespeare I think. I'll dig them out and shoot a couple of pics. I really like that fly reel.

I've seen several of those wooden fly reels that are in better shape that have been sanded and restored, but I like the way they look when they haven't been retouched at all. The old brass stuff is cool too. That's a giant fly reel too. It's actually bigger than the 12wt Nautilus reel I have.

How about this old buzzbait from 1935. One of a few lures my dad passed on to me.

Very cool stuff.
This was my Grandfather's. It's a Montague Dreadnought from around 1940. Two guides in the middle and a round one on the end. When the pole started to warp in one direction you'd string your line through the opposite guide and fish that way for a while to straighten the pole back up! Very ingenious!

Dragonslayer, I have the same rod by Montague, with an Ocean City "German Silver" reel. I got it from my father in law. When my brother in law saw the Montague he said "I remember cleaning out our grandfathers beach house garage, there were several of those bamboo rods but we only kept that one." My f-I-l told me the rods would take a set after trolling for blues all day. I think the rods were made with Calcutta bamboo.

Glad you told us that it's an antique, I guess I should quit using mine.
