...fishing reels and other fishy stuff! Hi minions, with all this investment talk, it got me thinking about something I have considered doing before. I regret not keeping a lot of my old fishing gear. I have thought at times of purchasing new quality gear and putting it away, still new in the box. Shimano Stradic FK's are on clearance now at Anaconda for $200. Not sure if they are that iconic, but perhaps 20 years down the track they may be worth something more than $200! Or of course they may be worth nothing! I have thought about purchasing a 'set' of lures (or 2...or 3!) as well and stashing them. Although it is difficult to think what lures to get as most these days are plastic. I have 5 Doof Doc lures which I could get a good price on ebay, however, I will not sell these. A local tackle store had a customer who purchased one or two of the expensive Megabass lures...he would have got another couple except the cases they are in had fingerprint marks on it! Anyway, what are people's views? Better off investing money elsewhere or could it be worthwhile 'collecting' some new items and 'sitting' on them? cheers Team Bender Trying to justify tackle purchases!
