Cash Paid for Old Fishing Lures, Reels & Their Boxes

Collecting old fishing tackle is a fun hobby. Fishing items from the late 19th or early 20th century show the craftsmanship that was common to those Victorian times. I am specifically interested in the preservation and history of antique angling memorabilia.

I am a private collector, not a dealer, of antique fishing related items for over 35 years. As such, I am able to offer a fair price for your antique tackle. I am especially interested in and buy early fishing reels, wooden and metal lures, and fishing medals. Over the years, I have bought items from Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Idaho, Iowa, Oregon, Maine, Washington, Missouri, Arizona, California and Canada. If you are interested in selling your old tackle or simply want a free appraisal, you can send me an Email or Text or Call me at my Cell phone number 407-496-7940.

The original boxes for these lures and reels can sometimes double their value.

For any questions about vintage antique fishing reels, lures or tackle, please feel free to Email or Call me. I always like to talk about old tackle.

Remember, I'm always buying old vintage fishing lures and reels!   I am a vintage fishing tackle buyer and can provide an appraisal.

To help you know which fishing tackle items are collectable, I have listed the ones I'm most interested in. This list is not inclusive of all collectable fishing reels or lures. Please contact me for specific information.

FISHING REELS - All of these fishing reels will be marked with the makers name. Value range is $50 to $3,000. I am especially interested in any reel made by companies from Kentucky and New York. Reels with Boxes is a plus.

FISHING LURES - The wooden lures typically have glass eyes and may or may not be marked with the makers name. Value range is $30 to $2,000. Lures with Boxes is a plus.

I am especially interested in any lure made Heddon or by companies from Florida.

This is only a sampling of the lure manufacturers. Contact me for specific questions.
