What’s Old is New

At one time my passion for collecting antique fishing tackle rivaled my passion for fishing itself. Times change; interests change, often in a circular path. My once prized collection is now better described as wall ornaments and a box in the basement. Time to find new homes for some and repurpose others.

Finding new homes – a couple Deckers on their way to another collector.

Originally from Lake Hopatcong, Decker later moved his office to Brooklyn.

White seems to be the most common color for Decker lures. A bland yet reliable choice.

Repurposing – these rough condition, rotary head topwaters will move from the bottom of the collector hierarchy to the top of the experimentation hierarchy in 2016.

Before returning to active duty, these oldies will likely receive a repaint.
