|Hi, my name is Earl Grant. I am a collector of later vintage and antique fishing tackle such as antique fishing lures, antique fishing reels and antique fishing rods. I have been a member of the 'National Fishing Lure Collector's Club (NFLCC)' since 1998. To join or learn more about the NFLCC and antique fishing tackle, visit their web site. My main interests are antique fishing lures made between 1914 and 1938 by Fred C. Keeling of Rockford, Illinois. I also collect 3HK and 5HK antique fishing minnows made by the larger lure manufacturers like Heddon, South Bend, Shakespeare, Pflueger, etc.|
I put this site together to share information I have gathered on Fred C. Keeling. Along with a brief history of Keeling. I have added, and will be adding, many pictures of antique Keeling lures and boxes, from my collection, as references. To learn about Keeling click on the 'About Keeling' icon or click 'here'.
I will also be adding several pictures of some of my antique fishing lures, such as flyrod lures, 3HK and 5HK minnows from various lure makers. To view them click on the 'My Collection' icon or click 'here'.
While searching out antique fishing lures, antique fishing reels and antique fishing rods for my collection I have purchased many vintage and antique fishing tackle items that I will resell or trade to fellow collectors. To view the items I currently have for sale, which include lures, reels, rods, catalogs and misc, click on the 'For Sale' icon or click 'here'.
I hope you find this site interesting and informative. Revisit me often since I am in the process of constructing this site and the list of items available for sale changes frequently.
