Mike Koller was a long-time NFLCC member and collector of fishing tackle. His particular emphasis was the collection of ephemera – paper and other items of fishing and tackle history. The items Mike collected ranged from ink blotters with fishing themes to matchcovers from tackle companies to freebie giveaways from some of the big tackle companies. He collected just about everything that was related to fishing and was not designed to be saved. A few years ago, Mike began writing about his collection for Dr. Todd’s Fishing for History Blog. Inside these pages are fifteen chapters that serve as a general introduction to collecting fishing and tackle ephemera. It’s a fascinating look at a growing field and a wonderful testament to Mike Koller, who sadly passed away while this book was being designed. He will be missed, but his collecting passion lives on in the form of this book.
