Leather bound fly fishing creel or basket with shoulder harness. Please read the full description, NO damage to the hand woven wicker. NO damage to cross band leather strips on the front. All bound leather stitches are intact. Creel is 14" by 5" by 7", top lid is 10" by 5 1/2". This is a very nice old creel. No makers mark. This was a Christmas gift to the previous owner 70+ years ago. Ill health prevented him from using it. It has been stored in his barn all this time. The leather strap disintegrated, now being sold with a replacement. This is an excellent fishing basket for display. The creel is structurally sound. See photos.
We have a large selection of Antique Fishing creels, Fly fishing Reels, Fly Rods, Bamboo and Fiberglass, Stream side scales, Leather Fly Wallets, Assortments of fly fishing flies, Streamers, Framed Flies and Framed and Unframed Fish Prints listed that are all on sale. We do not sell damaged creels or ones with the bottoms rotted out. It was a common practice to place wet moss inside of the creel, this kept the trout fresh. For this reason the vast majority of creels have severe damage and crumble when handled. This is not the case with creels that we sell.
