The first no-nonsense guide to this fascinating hobby and a must for every collector and fisherman alike.


Over the past few years there has been a phenomenal growth of interest in collecting old fishing tackle, be it rods, reels, nets, bags, or accessories, but until now the few existing guides have been aimed at the experts.

Collecting Fishing Tackle: A Beginner's Guide is the first straightforward, no-nonsense introduction to this endlessly fascinating hobby. Author Tom Quinn, an avid collector himself, looks at the whole range of collectible tackle from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries right up to the 1950 and beyond. He also argued that fishing tackle is one of the few areas of collecting where the enthusiast has a real chance of discovering some valuable rarity hidden away in an attic or junk shop. 

But whether you choose to collect top-quality Hardy reels or relatively inexpensive cane and greenheart rods, you'll find Collecting Fishing Tackle the perfect guide.
