Old and Antique Fishing Lure Media
Antique Fishing Lure Media and its Role
In today's society media plays
a great and influential part of our lives.
From news, to entertainment, to education our insatiable appetite for media seem
to grow. Media can also be used for
educational purposes with antique fishing lures, reels and tackle. From the
initial discovery of old or antique fishing lures and tackle, though dating the
fishing subject matter, and finally
adding a provenance to a piece of old or antique fishing tackle. Advertising and
media is and have
always been a great resource for researchers in any field, not just antique
and old fishing lures.
Reading, hearing stories,
looking at pictures and telling stories, are all things we do to enjoy, learn,
and preserve the only thing we have that isn't material and can never be taking
away, our minds, our heritage and our history.
Images from the golden days, ads
and articles from old magazines, provide a glimpse into the period and may help
lead us to a better understanding of what we now own and cherish. Blending that
with some of today's literary pieces, writings and opinions, photos, and
comments in a dynamic setting we hope you will find this section useful,
entertaining, and ever changing and growing.
They say that history repeats
itself and I can only dream and wish I can be present at some of this history
when it does.
Above are two categories, Old
Fishing Catalogs, and Old Fishing Magazines. I cant stress enough how important
these are for researching our favorite old fishing lure, rod, or reel. When I
first started collecting old fishing lures, I had, (and still have) a rather
large appetite for paper items that have to do with fishing lures. I believe
that it is a severely underappreciated part of our hobby, not just from a
collectable stand point but from a research and knowledge perspective.
I certainly hope you will
appreciate some of the views we are able to bring forth to you from catalogs and
magazines, as there are no other fishing lure websites out there besides ours
who share this knowledge with you.
