Hi, my name is Earl Grant. I am a collector of later
vintage and antique fishing tackle such as antique fishing lures, antique
and antique fishing rods. I have been a member of the
Fishing Lure Collector's Club (NFLCC)' since 1998. To join or learn more about the
NFLCC and antique fishing tackle, visit their web site. My main interests
fishing lures made between 1914 and 1938 by
Fred C. Keeling of Rockford, Illinois. I also collect 3HK and 5HK antique
fishing minnows made
by the larger lure manufacturers like Heddon, South Bend, Shakespeare, Pflueger, etc.
I put this site together to share information I have
gathered on Fred C. Keeling. Along with a brief history of Keeling. I have
added, and will be
adding, many pictures of antique Keeling lures and boxes, from my collection, as
references. To learn about Keeling click on the 'About Keeling' icon or click
I will also be adding several pictures of some of my
antique fishing lures, such as flyrod lures, 3HK
and 5HK minnows from various lure makers. To view them click on the 'My
Collection' icon or click 'here'.
While searching out antique fishing lures, antique fishing
reels and antique fishing rods for my
collection I have purchased many vintage and antique fishing tackle items that I
will resell or trade to fellow collectors. To view the items I currently have
for sale, which include lures, reels, rods, catalogs and misc, click on the 'For
Sale' icon or click 'here'.
I hope you find this site interesting and informative.
