Bass Fishing History Geekage.

This will probably be a little wonky for a lot of you, but for us bass-addicted souls who grew up in the 70s and 80s, I recently stumbled across the relatively new Bass Fishing Archives blog, and it has some pretty cool stuff from the bass fishing wayback machine, like this awesome Fliptail ad...

Or perhaps this story on the introduction of the most revolutionary baitcaster of all time, the legendary (and highly collectable these days) Lew's Speed Spool

This bass geek still has a few fliptail lizards and worms lying around somewhere, but like an idiot he long ago let his Lew's reels (and Speed Stick rods) slip away.

Anyway, it's admittedly obscure and all, but if you're at all interested in what bass fishing used to be like in the olden times, you might get a skirt blow-up or two out of it...
