Default Orvis "Stuff"

Drifter, as a proud owner of an Orvis leather wastebasket, includeing a jumping trout print affixed to the side, I guess inflation shows. I purchased this in '65 for 15 smackers along with a wicker creel w/ a Chase leather strap for another 35 clams. waste basket didn't hold up too well w/ empty beer cans but the creel has carried some trout and of all things, frogs, gigged on small ponds. Ah, them wuz the good old days, all though showing up for a frog gigging in Gordon Co. with a wicker creel brought about some near fist fights. TRW
