OUR BOOK NOTES:
Karl White's three volume series has consistently remained one our most popular resources in this field. Taken together, they represent one of the most broad and comprehensive approaches to this highly collectible (and profitable) collecting hobby.
I heartily recommend Karl's 3 book set as a worthy addition to any collector or dealer's reference library.

Pre-1970 Tackle Volume 1 - Fishing Plugs (Vintage Lures) - Author's Introduction:
The purpose of this book is to identify and evaluate plugs and plug boxes dated up to 1970.
Plugs are identified as a bodied lure made from wood, metal, plastic or any counterpart. Prices can fluctuate up to 50%, according to the demand of antique tackle. One thing to remember is that the better items keep getting more valuable and the common items stay about the same.
Lure Sets (items of one company's production) and Color Sets (all colors produced of one item), should be at least 25% more valuable. The values in this book are rated as to excellent condition, although the items pictured might not be.

Evaluation of Pre-1970 Tackle Volume 2 - Reels, Spoons, Spinners, Hooks & Harnesses - Author's Introduction:
The purpose of this book is to identify and evaluate reels and metal lures dated up to 1970.
Good reels usually have identification on them. Prices can fluctuate up to 50%, according to the demand of antique tackle. One thing to remember is that the better items keep getting more valuable and the common items stay about the same.
Reel and lure sets (items of one company's production) and sets of all the individual reels produced of one type, should be at least 25% more valuable. The values in this book are rated as to excellent condition, although the items pictured might not be.
Rarity, demand, condition and age determine value. Keep in mind that the higher the number of items found and in circulation, the lower the value is.
A true collector obtains tackle for love of the hobby and not for the investment. The only common denominator that everyone understands is putting a dollar value on it. Good finds of antique fishing tackle are hard to come by and more people are collecting the 1940's, and later.
In this book the lures are indexed alphabetically by manufacturer and by common name. The reels are indexed by manufacturer only.
There are three indexes:Lure by Manufacturer Lure by Common Name Reels by Manufacturer
Best of luck and good hunting, Karl T White

Pre-1970 Fishing Tackle Antiques & Collectibles Vol. 3 - Flyrod Baits, Rods & Misc - Author's Introduction:
These three volumes of "Fishing Tackle Antiques and Collectables" contain my entire collection, with the exception of duplicates. With the donation of my collection, this will be the conclusion of most of my involvement in collecting, having been in it for 55 years. I am consulting now only.
The reason for all the unknowns included in the three volumes are so that hopefully, the next generation of collectors will be able to identify them. Fishing tackle is the only collectable which has artistic, mechanical and craft involved.
. with the conclusion of these three volumes and the donation I bid you farewell as I am now retired from collecting. Best of luck and good hunting,
