The article interviewed NFLCC members Jim Fleming, NFLCC Gazette editor (but not, as the article erroneously notes, editor of the NFLCC Magazine), and Dan Basore of Chicago, architect of a traveling exhibit currently on display until October. Among the author's treasures were a Martin salmon plug (pictured above) and a Heddon King Basser in the box. These lures, as the author notes, were part of a lawsuit between the two companies in the late 1930s.
I thought it was a thoughtful and interesting article that certainly will inspire a few people to dig out their old tackle, and hopefully get them to appreciate what they have.
