A very rare surviving wooden travel or suit-case tackle box time capsule packed with vintage fishing equipment from 1920s. First is the Folsom 12 piece (5 different tips) combination bait casting and fly bamboo rod in very good condition for being close to 100 years old. The bait casting rod is 5 ½ feet and the fly rod assembles to 7 ½ feet.

Some of the wrap on eyelets needs to be rewrapped and one eyelet missing, finish looks good, ferrules all have a nice pop when separated, there is nothing broken and early 20. Century style cork handle looks great. I believe from research that the rod was made by James Heddon and Sons in Dowagiac, Michigan for Folsom Arms Co. A sporting goods retailer in New York.

The reels appeare to be original to the box as they have their own individual compartment and date to the same time frame. The Winchester 4250 bait casting reel is in very good working and esthetic condition was made in 1920's and 30s. The reel is stamped with an 80 for its line capacity. The fly reel marked Sturdibuilt-Wanita was manufactured by Ocean City in Philadelphia.
About 1924 and is made of aluminum. The reel finish is worn away but has that nice clicking sound.
The 6 window fly box (2 3/8 X 3 5/8) with 25 quality flies was made in England by S. The box also fits into a slot in the wood box and appears original.

The aluminum box is lightly scuffed and worn but springs, latches and hinges are sound. The 5 inch long (4 good carbon steel blade) folding single blade Kent black bone handle Fish-Knife was made by Camillus in New York City during the 1920s and later.

Lure brands include Trix-Oreno No. 596, Pflueger plus unmarked leader box with leaders and 3 unopened packets of Weber No. Not enough room for all the pictures so Im very open to photo requests and questions.
