Estate Sales News spoke interviewed Vicky Starich owner of Estate Sales Are Us and her father who assists her Monty Lutz. Vicky said “we started out conducting auctions for 4 years and then decided to transition to the estate sale business. We kept our 2,000 sq. ft building from the auction and that’s where this sale will take place. The home where this fishing collection was kept was not in condition to host an estate sale that could display this huge collection. We moved the contents of the home along with another small estate to our building”.  Mr Lutz told Estate Sales News “I have spent 4 plus weeks going through almost 100 tackle boxes, detangling, cleaning, organizing, researching and pricing the almost 400 bass type fishing lures not including the fly casting ones. The man had 30 ice fishing poles and close to 400 reels. He had 40 landing nets”.

Some of the lures include Heddon, Shakespeare, and South Bend. The estate includes 8 split bamboo fly rods. There is also a tramp art cross. Included in this sale from another estate are 8 Schwinn bicycles.
