So if someone wants an “instant” collection covering 30+ different years between the 50’s 60’s 70’s 80’s 90’s and this century, between 1957 and 2008 , they would have a great start for their ABU research.
Images are generally the same whatever country just the text/language difference but helpfully the colour weight lengths of lures is universal, like wise technical descriptions of bearings, gear ratios, capacities etc for rods, reels are also easy to understand despite different languages.
A spare beautiful Poster (600X450mm)created on Art quality

This Garcia Lure book is available for trade for items around what I paid for it in USA. ($25)
For the serious collector of Record ABU Pebco fishing equipment
Please see the wonderful Sport Fiskaren volumes of containing all 12 issues from each of the following years 1941, 1942, 1946, 1947, 1948 and 1949 .
This over 1200 pages in mint condition hard bound in cloth covered hard cardboard.
I merely want the same price (or equivalent value Record/ABU item) as when bought from Daniel Skupien to allow me to buy other material to share here.
1. A very rare Non Record , non ABU, only engraved with "Ambassadeur" in script often known as the transition reel,
number # 70870 excellent condition, what do you have to trade?
2. Assorted more difficult to find lures like coloured ABU Sv Pm or Krabba coloured lures
as well as CHROME ABU Island lures or early paper boxed lures I am missing.
These magazines, reels, lures are NOT for SALE, rather available they are for Trade or Swapping for items I need. Do write if anything interests you and we may strike a deal!
This list will no doubt extend but hopefully be reduced but generally change over time.
