About the collection

 

In 2001 I attended a fan fair in L.A. featuring vintage TV and movie stars signing autographs for long lines of nostalgic fans. Off the main room there was a paper ephemera show in progress, with old newspapers, posters, and postcards for sale. As I browsed through a box of old picture postcards I came across a section devoted to fishing and fisherman. As a lifelong angler and collecting enthusiast, the century old images and the accompanying messages intrigued and fascinated me. I was hooked then and there.
