Tight Lines Tuesday the Black Witch

For Halloween today the BLACK WITCH brand fishing line would be the Ideal one to use. Made in the late 1930s by the Newton Line Company of Homer, New York, this black colored supreme silk casting line had a label featuring an image of a black witch flying on her broom stick and the letters “O.V.B.” inside of a shield next to her.
This line was sold by the wholesale hardware distributor Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett, & Company of Chicago (1882 – 1962) which sold their top of the line quality merchandise with those letters “O.V.B.” which meant “OUR VERY BEST”
