Large tight weave, or French weave Fly fishing creel with shoulder strap. Please read the full description. I believe it is American made due to the design and the applied and attached leather front two piece closure. Creel is 17” by 6 1/2” by 8”, the opening in the top is also larger, 2 1/4 by 2 ½ inches. The shoulder strap is leather and green web and it is original and still very serviceable. The lid measures 13” by 5”. There are 45 vertical splines used to hand weave the split willow. No makers mark. The outside is pretty clean, the inside is discolored from use. The creel does not smell from fish or anything else. Due to its uniqueness this is one creel to be preserved. Not the right one? See 14 others listed ALL on SALE.
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.
