This advertisment?

She has a countrywear brook bag off her right shoulder, but I cannot see a creel. In the UK a creel is a wicker basket used for holding tackle and fish.

Sorry it is the bag that I am talking about, to me a creel is anything you could carry fish in over your shoulder. Thanks for the info though.

Yeah, it is a canvas "creel".

These were offered for sale here in the 'States and achieved some limited popularity in the years after WW II until maybe the early '70s. I always felt my ol' wicker creel (which is now hanging in my daughter's antique collection) was superior to them. But "them days are gone forever", as the saying goes

Creels are now considered passe' by fishermen - but they buy all sorts of vests, packs, over-shoulder bags, etc. Seems to me a creel was a better way to store and organize your gear... and you could FIND what you were looking for.

I haven't seen a decent, properly shaped creel in YEARS - now all you see is a "decorative" creel, with a flat back, made somewhere in the far east.

Sorry about the misunderstanding, my joke was meant to say that my eyes were occupied as they tried to scan for the creel. Bad joke

Looks a lot to me like an Arctic Creel. My guess is that those are still available through most sporting goods stores. I used one for years to tote the old lightweight waders when I was walking in some distance. You might try Cabelas.
Good luck in finding one.

I have one that is similar and made by Barbour... it has a linner in side and two flap pockets on the outside... made of Oil Egyptian cotton and leather reinforced.. I don't use it as a creel though ,more as a carry bag. So it may not be made by Hardy in the picture but a Barbour.

That is a Hardy product. I'm not sure if they are still impoting them. "Nice Cree-Ouch!"

I noticed on Ebay you now get a mouse mat with that lady on it.
What an excuse to have your hand wandering around the bottom of the mat
