Mint unused fly fishing creel or basket with shoulder strap. Please read the full description. This large full size creel measures 15” long, 6 1/2” by 8”, 10” to the top of the carrying handle. NO damaged to the hand woven wicker, leather or stitching. The front closure was replaced. The leather on the old one was cracking in several places and would eventually give way. The ruler that is printed in gold on the back of the top measures up to 8”, most are only up to 6 inches. There are no negatives with this creel. It is ready for use or just display. Fishing baskets in this condition are almost non- existent these days. Not the right one? See 14 others we have listed for sale. See photos.
At the Drury House Antiques we have a large selection of Antique Fishing creels, 14 to be exact, Wood Nets, 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, nor do any of them smell like dead fish.
