A friend of mine gave me these before she moved. I'm not sure how old they are, she picked them up at garage sales and such at some point in time. I just use them for decoration because they are so cute. :)

    Interesting,when I started fishing the steams for Brook Trout(many moons ago) I had seen the kreels in pictures that the modern fisherman was using.This was just after the depression so I showed my Mother and she gave me one of wicker purses to use in my fishing adventures.It was quite simular to last photo on the right.I haven't fished for Brookies in many years,thanks for the memories.

    Awesome story! Thanks for sharing! A friend of mine collects kreels and I just love them.

    If it helps I can date them for you--the early sixties--when I was carrying them. I have a photo of graduating from elementary school with one. And, of course, my mother had a couple.

    Thanks, Jackie. I kinda figured they were from around then. A little before my time and I don't remember seeing my mother with any like this, so I wasn't totally sure.
