    I really do worry WHERE people get these ridiculous prices from £399 for a lure . OK an old one.

    The problem is people pay the prices. As they say its the anglers that gets caught hook line and sinker all the time.

    It's all driven by the vintage tackle auctions largely alexj - that is where you can see what people are prepared to pay for certain classes of items and how you can research what has been paid in the past. Just the usual rules of supply and demand according to my schooltime economics class.
