Fishing Antiques
« on: October 10, 2021, 09:36:43 AM »
I read an add in this months FF&FT magazine for Fishing Antiques by a firm called Thomas Turner.

Looks like there's money in junk after all. 

Then it struck me we are sitting on a potential gold mine, this forum is packed with fishing antiques, myself, Fishtales and Inchlaggan and that's just for starters.   :shock:

Are you a fishing antique and if so how much do you reckon you are worth?   :lol:

When I retired my old firm said they might call me in on a consultancy basis, I said "sure a Grand a day is the going rate I believe", funnily enough the phone has never rang lol.
Retired and happy........................

Just had a look on the site and must have a loft full of old rods and reels and goes to show if in good condition are still worth a few pounds have numerous Michell spinning reels and shocked at what they still go for. Also used to have a couple of  Abu Ambassadeur 6000 multiplier reels which I gave to a so called friend for safe keeping as the belonged to a dear friend who sadly passed away needless to say never saw them again. But some nice fishing antiques

Thomas Turner are one of the main sponsors of the FFF site  ...  :shock:
Probably a useful source of custom for them.
