Hooked On Antique Fishing Lures!

"What I'm collecting is the history of fishing."

Anyone who has ever gone fishing knows how addictive the sport can be,but the attraction goes well beyond just throwing out a line. Fishing in the past was a necessity, a means of survival dating back over 40,00 years.

Now it's mostly a recreation,and fishing is one of the country's fastest growing sports. That growth is reflected in interest off the water as well. Antique lure collecting is a popular hobby, growing as fast as the sport itself, with collectors getting hooked as easily as a Lake Erie Bass.

Joe Walkowski is a long time angler who always had an interest in old lures, but a chance meeting turned that into a lifelong pursuit. " I met a guy at a sportsmen's show, and he was a collector, he had cases and cases of old fishing lures. He mentioned the National Fishing Lures Collectors Club, I joined, I bought references, and from that, I just got specific and started collecting more and more."
