 Petty's Reel and Rapala Bait  Notes

The pictured 1965/1966 Zebco ad shows Mr. L.L Petty's winning 18 pound largemouth bass together with the Zebco 33 reel and the Rapala lure that he used to catch the fish that won the referenced 1964 Field and Stream contest. All three [3] of these historical items have been kept together. The skin-mount bass, Zebco reel, and Rapala lure are being offered for sale for $1,200. Note that appropriate shipping insurance will be required. The owner will also provide a signed statement confirming his release of these historic items. The owner welcomes on-site examinations of these items in Goldsboro, NC. This collection 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.
