For collectors of antique tackle and fishing memorabilia, some interesting lots went under the hammer at Mullock’s recently.






The most recent Mullock’s fishing tackle auction, held on 21st November, was a great success. The large varied selection of vintage, classic and modern fishing collectables attracted a large crowd and record numbers bidding live online.

Unusual reels and gadgets headed the auction, such as:

•    Lot 24, An Intrepid Tournament reel sold for £85, surely a world record for an Intrepid reel!

•    Lot 33, Hardy St George Tournament sold well over estimate for £740

•    Lot 47, the only known example of a Hardy HJS reel in left hand wind format sold above estimate for £1,000

•    Aerial reels are strengthening with a rare 3 spoke Coxon Aerial selling into the UK market at £2,900

Gadgets and accessories were strong too:

•    Lot 126, an historic trout fly collection selling to a UK club for £560

•    Lot 180, the rare Gaynor of London wood float and cast winder sailed off at £300

•    Lot 275, a rare Jardine style ratchet pike gag went to a specialist collector for £2,000
The auctioneer’s favourite item of the sale was Lot 200, A Hardy miniature rod and reel outfit, which sold for the upper estimate of £4,000

In all, it was a great sale, 86% sold with  a packed auction room and busy online bidding throughout on two live bidding platforms.

All prices shown exclusive of commission and charges.
