A HUGE collection of 157 vintage and used fly lures mounted in a vintage leather case in a hanging glass display case.

This is an AWESOME collection of some of the most beautiful flies that Iíve ever seen. There are major lure manufacturers represented in this collection. Special note is given to the FROG in the top row on the right side of the display. Its color is bright and near perfect. I believe the FROG is made of leather. Also, please notice the vintage, handmade looking fly lures in the bottom right row in addition to the well-known fly lures throughout.

How old are they? Around what year?

I wish I could date them, but I am not an afficionado of lures. I picked this collection up at a sale. They look darn old though. Follow this link where there are six pictures of them:

None of that stuff looks vintage to me. ?

I'm not an expert on lures, and I am definately not trying to mislead anyone, but some of the lures in the case sure look old to me. The lures I think are old and vintage are the grey lures and crickets next to the crawdad and the frog on the top right row of the case. The third picture down on the left column of thumbnails shows them.

Roop, I genuinely appreciate your honest feedback about the collection to the group. Whoever bids should have no doubt in their mind what they are buying.
