My oldest brother is a bass fisherman, and has been longer than I've been alive.(53 years) A while back he gave me one of his old tackle boxes. I remember as a kid getting to sit and play with all of the treasures that this box as well as the 10-15 other boxes he had contained. His love of fishing was passed to me, as well as his addiction to tackle hording. I think I will sharpen a few hooks on some mudbugs and catch a fish or two on them. hope you enjoy the pics.

I was checking. I don’t blame you for not using or getting rid of any of them. Sure could make a nice display case with some of those.

Very cool! I still got all my dad's old hard baits, no way I'd part with a single one.
