Hello! Allow me to apologize for the lack of updates and offer an explanation. A few years back I had purchased a tablet and unfortunately, this website cannot and does not allow for editing via a tablet. Only now, do I have a laptop that enables me to interface with the site once again.
That's great news for everyone as I have a TON of lures to sell.
I will be updating the Lures section over the next few weeks so check back often. Please check the Shipping and payment section.
I can always be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
I do have a day job, so please allow some time for me to respond. Thanks folks!
Rebel Lures Salesman's Attache' case
Came across this stunner at an auction in California. This is an incredible find and deserves a home in a Rebel collection. The baits in this case date to 1969-1970. The case has lures that
pre-date the release of new models for 1970 and I estimate the case to
date to around 1969 more accurately. Lost during a move a few years back, I am happy to offer it to a Rebel collector. I m sure that all collectors know how rare this item is...That being said, I will say that the case has been estimated at somewhere between $700-1000 and also know that I am a reasonable man. If interested contact me: Chuckstacklebox@gmail.com
Case is in excellent condition! Love the Bass!
I found this little doosie at the bottom of a tackle box last year and it wasn't until recently that I found out what it was. This is the H.R. Stewart "Pilot" the lure dates to 1903. I was able to find and actual ad for the lure from a hardware magazine.Thanks to Tim for his help with the ID of this neat lure.
This Ad shows the Pilot at the bottom with some well-known lures of the time

Incredible "Oscar Peterson's Decoys" Tin Sign
Authentic Oscar Peterson tin sign advertisement. This is an incredible piece and one that I suspect could complete a Peterson decoy collection. Raised-relief and most-likely dating to around the late 1930's to early 40's Isimply cannot put into words how neat this sign is. Absolutely nothing wrong with this sign, no dents, not pits, no rust. Posted here for your enjoyment. - Chuck

I managed to find this picture of what a severely weathered sign looks like. Glad this one survived.
A nice collection of fishing related bottles and containers make a
Nice to know that niche' collectors are preserving
these pieces of fishing history.
Four Pennsylvania Fishing license badges - 1951, 1952, 1953 & 1955
each one is authentic and highly collectible. Although southern states and earlier types are more highly sought after, these four definitely make a great addition to a collection. Was thinking about holding onto them.
Selling at $12.00 each.
