Found this old card board fishing pole carrying case while picking today. On the end: "Rod Caddy". It is heavy card board material with a handle, blue plastic end caps, metal trim, and a lock. It is stamped with " 806 N Peoria, Chicago, 22, IL", and "Pat Pend". I'm guessing it was made in the late 1950's because that's when they applied for a patent and I think it went out of business in the 1960's. It must have gotten a lot of good use because it has a Republic Airline tag attached.
