Wellsley made some good points. As a collector for more than
10 years I have bought fly's that are high priced. But you have to
consider these are collector items. Some examples, I purchased
a Creek Chub Dingbat flyrod lure made in 1938 in 7/8" size for
$100.00. Saw this one go on E-Bay 3 years ago for $225.00. A
Heddon Pop - Eye Frog flyrod fly made in 1940 in EX condition with
box I purchased for $75.00 and sold for $150.00 last year.
The point I am trying to make there are some great antique fly's made in the past that collectors would love to have and some modern fly's also
bring alot of money. Everyone has a hobby, mine is collecting fishing
lures, yours may be throwing money into a car, boat, ect. It's all in
fun and what you enjoy!!!!
