My Father Lynn Greenwood spent the better part of the last 40 years collecting old fishing gear. He is a member of the association I believe one of the first hundred members. I have amassed his collection in my basement and am presently sorting through it. I am debating handing it over to an auction house for sale. I believe my father would rather have members have a chance to purchase items knowing you have the same passion he did. Health issues have required him to be in a very good facility to care for him. I will try to add pictures of items has i can for viewing. I am based in the Hudson Valley in New York, I will respond to any email requests for viewing. My email is ccg600514 @aol.com.

Mr Bill Hellmer, NFLCC 2004, Ind.
Your email won't take Carl....
names Big Foot, I too am NFLCC.
Saw your post on the site.
I do not envy your chore here at all.
Thought I'd just let you know some of my
interests in collecting lures, and if you have anything
in these interests and can send me a pic or two, that
would be great and maybe we can work out something.
I Don't have the deepest pockets like some, maybe that's why
my collections are on the low end side of the tracks, hah
Heddon Crazy crawlers
Millsite lures and such (Mich.)
Makinen lures and such (Mich.)
Creek Chub Inj MInnows in 3 hook and th tinyier ones (9500 & UL's)

Carl - there are so many variables to take into consideration that you and your father need to consider. It's wonderful that your father would want the collection turned over to his friends and associates that he's dealt with for decades in the NFLCC. The NFLCC is currently revamping our Survivorship program to assist members such as your father and family members such as yourself with the liquidation of collections. At the present time we do not have the bandwidth to quickly sell your collection and present you and your family with the proceeds. Our largest venue is the NFLCC Nationals held in July where we auction fishing lures each year and we already have a substantial collection to sell at this years show. There are 3 professional auction houses (Crossroad, Langs, and Morphy) that work specifically with collections of this type and a 4th auction house (Guyette & Deeter) that focuses more on ducks and fish decoys. I wish you the best in dealing with your father and his collection and I will respond to your requests or posts here for further information. best regards - Stuart Strange - NFLCC President
