Cast from the past!  

The History of Fishing Museum is the largest collection of antique fishing lures, rods, reels, boats, and motors collected entirely by one man and his wife, Karl & Beverly White.  Karl began collecting at the age of eight.  The first lure Karl bought was the James Heddon's Crazy Crawler (the most expensive lure to produce at the time).  That lure is still in the collection today - nearly 70 years later!!!

The Whites' collection represents everything that is "collectible" in antique tackle and fishing paraphernalia.  This special collection is comprised of more than 40,000 pieces.

The oldest patented piece in the collection is a Buel Trolling Spoon that was patented in 1852, but the collection also includes fishing artifacts that date back pre-colonial.  Newly added to the expansive collection are aquatic dinosaur bones and fish fossils.
