tonite my wife told our oldest boy (16) that she got a tackle box for him today! i have never seen her get him anything fishing related as i think she feels like we allready have enough fishing stuff (not a chance lady):tounge_out: . anyhow he went out to the car and brought it in and opened it up and for over a half an hour we eww and awwed over some cool old lures and then at the bottom we found the real treat. it had the original catalog that came with the box ! the umco tackle company. this box was listed at a whopping 9.68 new:big_smile: turns out her friend at works dad went into a nurseing home a while back and they moved his wife into a small house in town and they were going to put this box and some other things in a yard sale saturday. luckily she posted the items at the hospital for her co workers to get first dibs on anything of interest and bless my wifes heart she got the tackle box for 20 bux. i am currently bidding on an exact box on ebay as i type this. another treasure in the box is a little fishing book that shows how to skin fish and rig tackle and how to read a river or stream etc. i feel bad for the man that owned this box but i know that it has been passed on to another fisherman that will get to use it with pride. he allready has his main tackle transferred over and wanting to got his weekend :smile2: . i will post pictures of the box the books and ad later .
