    Default Antique Bobbin & Other Items

    An old friend I grew up with told me his dad was a big fly fisherman back in the 1940s and he had some of his materials. He wanted to know if I wanted them since he had no use for it, of course I said yes thank you!

    anyway there are a few books, feathers, thread, hooks and tools. Thought I would show yall this bobbin.

    There is a hole in the metal tube just above the spool and then it would come out the top end.

    Hope to find out what these were used for. You can see holes made in some and maybe a couple of notch type places?

    Looks a lot like the old Herters bobbin. They usually had two nuts on the side to tighten. Herters had the hole above the spool also, I might even have a couple laying around.

    I am not sure it’s all there, the knob is not all that tight.

    I would love to see one to compare and see if something is missing.

    I looked at it again and that has a set screw to tighten it down. I guess if you push it against the spring it would control tension some? That thread I guess is also from the 40’s?
