I am always excited when any museum puts a display of vintage fishing and tackle items on display. Thus when I get a news alert like this one for the Morristown Gateway Museum of New York I am excited. Organized by museum trustee Gary R. Alford, he put the display together because he "believes that the antique fishing gear demonstrates the creativity, craftsmanship and culture of the region, with many of the lures being everyday items in a fishing tackle box 100 years ago."
