Item# Pictures Description Price
William Billinghurst (1807-1880) Bird Cage Reel - he was a well known gunsmith whose patent for a side-mount reel built of wire and castings is now considered to be the first American fly reel. The unique appearance of these reels has prompted some to refer to them as birdcage reels. This circ 1878 reel is in VERY GOOD PLUS condition. It is a later model with the collapsible knob. The knob has been expertly replaced. $1095.00

Heddon Crab Wiggler #1909J - very nice early circ 1920's wooden lure with glass eyes and in the pretty Frog Scale finish. Both eyes are fine. The lure is in EXCELLENT condition and comes in the correctly marked box along with some early paperwork on the Crab Wiggler. Box is in crisp condition. Great combo for ones collection. $450.00
