Tight Lines Tuesday the Puritan
by John Etchieson
Sometime in the fall of 1621, the Puritans invited their Indian friends to join them in a three-day festival which we now call the first Thanksgiving. As an avid collector of all kinds of antique fishing tackle items, I just had to show off this 93 year old (1924) Horrocks-Ibbotson Company wooden spool of PURITAN brand Italian silk fishing line from my collection … this just seemed like the right week to do it.
