    Good Morning,
    I have been kind of busy, (lazy?), lately, but I have had some items I have been wanting to post. I love this site, and really like everyone that post's on here. It seems like I have known some people on here for ever! I have learned quite a bit on here and I find myself on here at least 10-20 times a day. I am hooked ! My "lunch, free time, etc." at work are spent on Collector's Weekly ! Afternoons, evenings off and on the same.
    Okay here is my Sunday morning mystery. I found this at a yard sale and could tell that it was special. I could tell it was a tackle box because of all of the hooks in it. It looks like it may have been made to clip to your belt on the hip because of the curve. I was thinking maybe fly fishing, simply for the fact that you spend time standing in the water, casting, and it would be a nice place to keep extra flys. I was wondering if anyone had ever seen or had one of these before. There are no markings on it as to who made it. I also was wondering about the nine holes in the lid in the shape of a cross. I am sure someone on this site has seen one ! Thanks for looking.

      While it works very well for tackle, it is really a bate box (worms).

      Thanks for the information gundoc1 ! That makes alot of sense, holes are probably for air.
    3. ThriftyGypsy ThriftyGypsy, 11 years ago
      Thanks for the info AR8Jason ! I was thinking more like tackle, but it makes sense to have your bait right at your side.
    4. ThriftyGypsy ThriftyGypsy, 10 years ago
      Thanks AR8Jason for the like, and for the information I got from you a few months back !

      ThriftyGypsy: The bait box you are showing is used mainly for cricketts-sometimes for worms with plenty damp moss.

      Thanks sayer34 for the love and the information ! That definitely helps me verify it is a bait box ! T.G.

      Asolutely not AR8Jason, I was trying to be polite to some feedback I received from another poster ! I totally agreed with your description and case was closed. I think it would be kind of hard to catch a cricket running around in there ! Your post was mystery solved, I forgot to check it off. You are always the final word !!!! T.G.
    11. ThriftyGypsy ThriftyGypsy, 10 years ago
      Whew, that's a relief AR8Jason !!! I will have to learn to decipher when you are joking ! That is a pretty deep question that you have posed.......I would have to say you are always right when you are alone !! That is what I would call a one sided arguement,lol. But would he still hear a tree if it fell ???? Talk to you later, and thanks for clearing that up for me . T.G.
    12. ThriftyGypsy ThriftyGypsy, 10 years ago
      Ha, I think that is the best answer for that question.... I know my wife would agree,lol. TG
