 Petty's Bass, Zebco Reel, and Bait
 Petty's 18 Pound Bass  Notes

The pictured Field and Stream magazine page shows Mr. L.L Petty and his 18 pound largemouth bass — the bass that won the referenced 1964 Field and Stream contest. Mr. Petty's actual skin-mount contest-winning bass is for sale. The mount's present owner will provide a signed statement confirming his release of this historic item. The owner welcomes on-site examinations of this mount in Goldsboro, NC. This bass mount is both rare and historic — there is only one in the world.


 Prototype Bagley Monster Shad  Notes

The pictured Bagley Monster Shad is a very special bait - it is a 2012 year prototype made by Bagley - before the Bagley company was sold to its present owner. Bagley designated this color as "Blue Ghost" (H7S). This one-of-a-kind prototype Bagley MSD is of particular interest to Bagley Bait collector's and it is for sale directly from Bamboo Baits. There is only one.
