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.
