Latest find.

Post by loomis » Mon Aug 31, 2009 6:25 pm

Hi guys and girls,

Just thought I would pop in and make my first post on this forum. I have been a member for a while now, but havent got around to making a post...been too busy scouring through the threads looking, reading and of course drooling.

I recently picked up 7 un-used, still in original box Arbogast 5/0oz Mud-Bugs. 3 yellow and 4 green. I have been trying to find out when they were made. Inside each of the boxes there is a "Fishing Hints & Pocket Catalog". This has #79 on it. I am hoping this will help find a year (or at least a general time frame).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome Leigh . . . I'm assuming you mean 5/8oz and will need to look at the packets to give you an indication of age. Mudbugs are getting a bit scarce in some colour patterns . . . old yellow cardboard box with clear marked plastic sleeve???

Spot on...I sent an email to the seller a few days ago, and he finally replied late last night. He says he bought them in July, 1970. When I get a chance I will get some photos up so you guys can have a look, and maybe confirm.
