In the News: Treasure in a Tackle Box

About once or twice a year, an outdoor writer will pen a really good article about vintage fishing tackle. I'm not talking about one of those articles about an NFLCC show; there are a number of good columns about tackle shows that are almost an annual event. I'm talking about a nostalgic look at the history of tackle told through a personal point of view.

This is the case with Ed Godfrey's article "Finding Treasure in a Tackle Box" in the Sunday The Oklahoman. Godfrey was gifted a tackle box full of vintage lures, and hot on the news that a set of vintage lures was sold in Florida for $125,000, called NFLCC member Karl White to find out what he had.

I won't spoil the punch line, but it's definitely worth a read -- until the next time an outdoor writer finds a vintage tackle box.
