Our 'Vintage Fishing Kit' art print features a collection of old fishing gear from the 1930s through 1950s. The kit a hiking angler would put together today hasn't changed much since—a rod, reel, small selection tackle, extra line, would all be packed into a compact shoulder bag. The materials used then were a mix of organics like canvas and cork, but new materials were emerging such as fibreglass and early plastics. And although the articles on our print are well-worn, that they survive all these years later is a testament to their durability.
The inspiration behind our Vintage Fishing Kit art print
One day a good friend was rummaging through his garage and brought out a collection of dusty old fishing gear he'd been given. As we began to sort through the collection, I was drawn to the well-worn look of the canvas kit. It wasn't in great shape but that was part of the allure as I could imagine it slung over its owner's shoulder as he hiked along a trail to his favourite fishing hole. Before long I was photographing the set and converting what my lens captured this art print. The result is a work that captures the character of the rods and makes an ideal piece for any angler or art lover.
