Just taken a few snaps of my 'non-fishing' Abu box. (The black shore minnow Hi-Lo lurking in the bottom of the box is 'going back to work' though, as I've now also got a near mint one :wink: )

Nice idea that John, storing them in a vintage Abu box.

I shall have to look out for one myself.

Thanks Will :thumbs:

It was a bit of a 'labour of love' - when I acquired the Abu 'Old Pal' box as it was ingrained with garage-grime an spattered with paint! They're quite hard to come by now, cheaply, so I was very pleased to get one.

It does look nice and clean.
I saw one on eBay fairly recently John, did not see what it sold for unfortunately.
