Early fly fishing creel or basket, center hole, in mint unused condition, Please read the full description, the creel is contoured on the back to fit comfortably at the hip. It is round in the front. The creel is constructed with white willow and has no breaks or any damage. This is an unusually large creel for large Rainbow or Brown Trout. The shoulder strap is webbed fabric, with no frays, fastener is an adjustable buckle. This center hole creel is 10 1/2" high, 13" wide, and 9" from front to the back.

At The Drury House we have over 150 Fly Fishing Rods, Reels, Creels, Framed and Unframed Fish Prints, Leather Fly Wallets, Scales, Framed and unframed fly fishing Flies and Nets. We have a large selection of about 14 creels listed. 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.
