Great Falls Sporting Goods 1924 Image

Cool image from the inter-web yesterday doing some surfing about.

Check out the stuff in this 1924 image of Great Falls Sporting Goods Store.

Cool creels hanging, upper left has a hook display or two, I think reels on the left too.

How about the wooden glass topped merchandising cases. What is in the cases on the right?

Craig Bridge circa?

Love to walk back in time and check out the inventory.

I wonder how much the flies were? And what was the selection like?

I suspect they did not have 1200+ fly bins.

Although I bet the anglers of the day did not need as many options.

Cat gut leaders, silk lines, bamboo poles, and Leadwing Coachmans.

All you need!

The Craig Bridge was here. It was built in 1902.

Joe’s Bar? Not yet…

  • Just love all of the historical pictures and stories. I like to learn the history of the places that I like to go to. Wish that I had learned about the great fishing on the Missouri years ago. Keep up the good work, I’ll see you again next year. Allen
