The man who taught me to fish gave me his tackle as he is now nearly 90 and unable to fish. He has not fished much in the last two decades and most of the tackle is from the 60's, 70's and 80's. A couple of the tackle boxes are likely from the 50's.
He had 3 sons who did not like to fish, but found a neighbor boy (me) who loved to fish. I was 11 and he was in his late 40's. I am so grateful for the time he invested in me from ages 11 to 16. Looking back on it, he was not a great fisherman, but that mattered so little, I'll I needed was somebody to invest some time with me.
About 5 years ago, I took him fishing, frog fishing on a private lake and he missed nearly every fish, but he or I did not care, as I just enjoyed watching him fish. About 6 months ago he called and asked if I wanted his fishing stuff. Of course I said yes. I'm looking for an idea for the best use of the stuff. Some of it maybe of value, most of the stuff likely not. Any thoughts on how to value the stuff and who might buy it? I would love to donate the proceeds to another generation of fisherman.
