Rare child's fly fishing creel with leather and canvas shoulder strap, NO damage. Early tight weave creel or basket, 30 vertical splines, a sign of a very early example. Hand woven creel is 10" long, 7" tall, lid is 8 1/2" by 5". Clean inside and out. This is a RARE one and in this condition they do sell for over $500. See photo of this one beside a standard creel of the same age. Circa 1910
We have a large selection of Antique creels listed that were part of a fly shop display in Maine, that is why these are so perfect. I was fortunate enough to purchase the contents of the shop and will be listing Fly Rods, Reels, Creels and over 200 vintage hand tied Streamers. 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.
Also see last photo of some but not all of the creels we have listed.
