This has absolutely nothing to do with Fiberglass, nothing to do with, Fly-Fishing, so if I am too far out just lock this dude down. So, getting onto this forum got me digging and I have a crapload of fishing plugs from the 60's, 70's, 80's still on the skin packs and boxes. Also have tackle boxes full form back in the day. Why do I have these, I dunno. I have no idea the value, but I know there are buyers out there. How do I know what to sell them for - is there any gauge besides going through each piece, piece-x-piece?

Here is one example that I think I will just fish.

Those are bass/bream poppers. Cast them with a 6/7/8/9 weight fly rod, especially on a warm summer evening. One of my favorite fly rod 'flies'.

Wear a hat with a rim that can protect your ears. Until you get used to casting poppers, sometimes the cast makes contact with the caster.

Thanks, I fish a lot of poppers but generally on a 3-WT in a pond on the Fly. Really this is not a good example of what all I have to purge, most of it is bass stuff. This is just an example of the era of which I got the stuff

Gear from that era is cool...love those old poppers.

UMCO and Kennedy Kits tackle boxes are somewhat collectible, so don't give those away for nothing.
