Remember these

Post by Eperous »

Been tying for a couple weeks now, rummaging through "stuff" as I search for needed materials... and stumbled upon a few of these...

...anyone remember these before ceramic bobbins became the rage and so popular? :?:

I think Reed Tackle used to sell these simple bobbins for a quarter a piece. I also think as a kid I might even tried to bend/shape bobbins from wire shirt hangers. :roll: :o

Are all tyers pack rats and hoarders of stuff from days long since gone? :?

If so, what are you hoarding? :?:

Uh-oh. I see trouble coming. I also want to see Dana's stash of Darbee necks. And I think Simonson has a "silk problem" that he might confess to. Phil Anderson has a stash of first editions of really good English north country stuff. So it'll be interesting to see where this all goes.

Meanwhile, I'll warm up the room:
