Hooked on Paper with Michael Koller: Fishing Post Cards

Deltiology is the official name for postcard collecting. Within each subject, such as fishing, there are many variables or sub-catagories. Real photo,  exaggeration, humorous, are a few examples of this. Following is a small sample of the many fishing postcards that are out there waiting for you to come along and enjoy them.
Many of the cards have the postmarks on the back dating back over one hundred years. Often the messages written there are enjoyable and typical of todays speak. Please explore with me over the next several months the history and joy of "fishing" postcards.
